Rishi Sunak – 2021 Comments on Levelling Up

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, at Shildon Railway Museum on 9 December 2021.

We are absolutely committed to levelling up opportunities across the whole of the UK so people have good jobs and greater opportunities.

It’s fantastic to see how our £20 million investment will enhance this popular tourist attraction. This will boost access for rural communities so they can enjoy the area’s rich railway heritage and connect people to key transport links nearby.
