Referendum on a Yorkshire Parliament

A copy of the letter sent to Prime Minister can be found in downloads

Following Saturday’s successful launch event in York, the Campaign for a Yorkshire Parliament has written to the Prime Minister urging him to call a referendum on a Yorkshire Parliament

The letter points out the fantastic potential which Yorkshire has and which could be unleashed if Yorkshire was empowered through a Parliament and able to set its own priorities.

Philip Hardstone from the Campaign commented:

“We believe that such empowerment is possible only through the establishment of a devolved parliament for Yorkshire: a parliament where everybody’s voice is heard and where every vote counts.

“Given the Prime Ministers speech in Manchester last week, we think he gets how important it is for the whole of the U.K. to have a vibrant Yorkshire economy so we await his response with interest.
