Abstract

Launching the book, last week,English Regions After Brexitco-edited by Dr Steve McCabe and myself on behalf of the Institute for Design and Economic Acceleration(IDEA) and published by Bite-Sized books, involved moderating a discussion on devolution options for English regions considered by a range of panellists including Lord Michael Heseltine, constitutional expert, Professor Vernon Bogdanor CBE, and economistsVicky Pryce, Paul Forrest of the Midlands Economic Forum and my colleague, Dr Steve McCabe of IDEA.
Sadly with technology not quite yet delivering a ‘hitch-free solution’, two contributors were unable to join us –Sir Vince Cable and Rt Hon Liam Byrne —with our sincere regrets that they were unable to provide us with their experiences and insights. Twenty one contributors alongside Dr McCabe and myself produced content for the book, alongside a Foreword by Sir Vince Cable with an Afterword by Lord MichaelHeseltine. The volume covers 17 chapters reviewing devolution in the context of Brexit, economic considerations, potential structures, and looking ahead to the opportunities provided through devolved power.
