Giving Power to the People: The Future of Devolution

Michael Heseltine and Ben Rogers

Michael Heseltine has always been a strong supporter of cities and devolution. He talks now about his vision for cities for the future and where devolution can go next. Can cities get powers to raise more funding locally? How can the potential of the new city-regions be maximised? He is introduced by Ben Rogers, Centre for London, who talks about the potential of a UK parliament of mayors in extending devolved powers further.
