Webinar recording: Is Levelling Up cutting through?

15 December 2022

In this webinar experts discussed whether the Levelling Up agenda has been effective. We looked at whether those promises are cutting through, what needs to happen next for Levelling Up to succeed and in particular, assessed the results from our research conducted with YouGov in our new report 'Is Levelling Up cutting through?'.

Many people believe the next election will be decided by which party is seen to be doing the most to 'Level Up' the country, in particular within the former 'Red Wall' seats in the North and the Midlands. Rishi Sunak's opening speech as Prime Minister included a pledge to Level Up every region in the UK, taking forward the policy that helped Boris Johnson sweep to victory in the 2019 General Election, and Keir Starmer has said his approach will be built around a strategic plan with funding for infrastructure.
