Levelling up: Boris Johnson promises more powers for local leaders

BBC News says Boris Johnson has set out the “skeleton” of a plan to “level up” the country, by spreading power and opportunity more evenly.

In a speech in Coventry, the PM insisted his flagship policy will not make the “rich parts” of the UK poorer but would be a “win win” for everyone.

He also pledged to hand more power to local leaders, with the possibility of elected mayors for counties.

Labour described Mr Johnson’s speech as “gibberish nonsense”.
