Response to IPPR North’s analysis of job growth in England

Responding to IPPR North’s analysis of job growth in England, Richard Brown, Deputy Director at Centre for London said:

“London and the South East have accounted for significant job growth over the last decade. This has benefitted not only Londoners but also commuters into the city, of who more than a quarter live outside the capital.”

“Job growth is good for the whole country but more needs to be done to spread prosperity beyond London’s boundaries.”

“London leaders must work together with regional partners to make the case to central government for infrastructure investment and devolution in every city and region, to support good growth and help people who are struggling to get by.”
