What does Government mean by ‘levelling up’? Peers ask journalists and ministers
The Public Services Committee speaks to Financial Times, Guardian and Spectator journalists to explore possible divisions in Government about its ‘levelling-up’ strategy
The Committee also hears from Government ministers from the Department for Education and the Department of Health and Social Care:
- Who is leading across Government on ‘levelling up’? Is there a joined-up approach between Departments?
- What criteria will your departments use to measure the effectiveness of investment in ‘left behind’ areas?
- What role will investment in public services, and public services reform, play in the strategy?
- What role should investment in early intervention and preventative services play in achieving the aims of the strategy?
