Metro mayors need new powers and stronger accountability

On 18th June, 2022, we published our report ‘Give Back Control’, that urges the Government to unleash a wave of mayoral devolution to level up growth and boost the Conservatives’ electoral prospects.

Deputy Director and author of the report Adam Hawksbee wrote op-eds for The Times, Local Government Chronicle and The MJ and spoke to LBC about its main findings. 

Findings from the report were covered in The Daily Mail, The Northern Echo, Bloomberg, Manchester Evening News and other outlets.
