High level talks called by Government ministers have failed to solve the devolution row over new powers for Yorkshire.
Council bosses from across North, West and East Yorkshire were in Westminster today to talk about the competing bids for new powers in the county, but after the meeting said little new agreement had been found.
York’s council leader Chris Steward was there, along with North Yorkshire County Council’s Carl Les and local authority chiefs from the East Riding, West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
