Nick Clegg on Hull and Humber's "City Deal"

These deals help cities and their wider areas make once in a generation changes that will be felt by everyone across their region. Letting go of power and money doesn't come naturally to Whitehall. Over time, the economic importance of other parts of the country has been devastatingly downplayed, as the economic elite have narrowed the debate towards a London-centric view. Rather than let our industries and communities wither, we need to free up cities outside of London that have their own unique selling points.

– Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg
