The Guardian – Tories accused of zero progress on half of levelling up goals laid bare 

The Conservatives have been accused of failing to live up to their ambitious levelling up aims for Britain’s regions, as half of their targets still show no progress, according to analysis by The Guardian. The study indicates that of the 12 initial targets set for less prosperous regions of Britain, nothing has been achieved in education, skills, wellbeing, local pride, housing and health. An academic is quoted accusing ministers of “failing to turn the tide on regional inequalities”. But the levelling up department denies failure, saying the plan is “long-term” and it is making “significant progress” in its mission.
