The Heseltine Institute’s Policy Provocations series is hosting a fascinating debate on the question of regional devolution.

You can hear Philip Blond of the ResPublica think-tank and Prof  Graham Wilson from Boston University.

Devolution to English cities and city-regions is being sold as the way to tackle all manner of challenges, from narrowing the wealth gap between North and South, to achieving the efficiencies in public service delivery that austerity budgeting demands. But is it?

And can Liverpool city-region’s political leaders secure the sort of ‘deal’ from Government that makes the game worth the candle? Can devolution deliver and how will we know if it does?
