Michael Gove – 2022 Comments on Funding Support for Councils

The comments made by Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, on 8 February 2022.

Levelling up can only succeed if our local partners have the powers and resources they need to help transform their communities.

Today’s £54.1 billion settlement represents a real terms increase of more than 4.5% from last year and will make sure councils can improve local services, protect vulnerable people and build back better from the pandemic.
