Lord Greaves – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the HM Treasury

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Greaves on 2015-12-17.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government which of their funding programmes are included within the Northern Powerhouse concept; and what is the estimate of the amount that will be spent by each department, and on what projects, in the current year and next.

Lord O’Neill of Gatley

Our Northern Powerhouse initiative aims to redress the imbalance between the North and the rest of the UK, and help the North in reaching its potential through investing across a wide range of areas. This includes spending £13 billion on transport, £46 billion on schools, and £150 billion on health in the North of England over the course of the next Spending Review period.
