Is there a free market vision for levelling up?

28 September 2020, 11:00am

Levelling up is a key part of this government's agenda, and the success of the project will likely be a strong factor in deciding who wins the next general election. However, whereas most agree that boosting the prosperity of all of the regions of the UK outside of the South-East is a worthy goal, the method is more disputed.

This discussion will bring together different perspectives within the centre-right coalition to debate different approaches to levelling up. Is this something that we need the government to kick start, or can we rely on the private sector and the free market? What role, if any, is there for the government in boosting growth outside of London? This session will debate these questions in detail.
