Abstract

Since the 2019 General Election, ‘levelling up’ has been a consistent theme employed by government minsters and MPs, keen to emphasise a new commitment to ‘level up’ and boost the prosperity of so-called ‘left behind’ places. Such talk plays well with the government’s new supporters in the ‘Red Wall’ constituencies won over in 2019. Yet, while the government has recently appointed a ‘Levelling up’ advisor – Neil O’Brien MP – and has promised a White Paper (due in the next few weeks), so far, there is no clear ‘levelling up’ policy agenda. Moreover, the Conservatives’ much vaunted ‘industrial strategy’ – which emphasised new ‘local industrial strategies’ – seems to have been quietly ditched.
