Peter Aldous questions Government about monitoring levelling-up progress

Peter Aldous questions the Government on monitoring cross-departmental progress on the delivery of the Government’s 12 levelling-up missions.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con)

T7. As the Government’s 12 levelling-up missions transcend the responsibilities of any one Government Department, what co-ordinating and monitoring work is my right hon. Friend’s Department carrying out to ensure the successful delivery of those policies? (903430)

The Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General (Jeremy Quin)

My hon. Friend is absolutely right that that needs co-ordination. I am delighted to say that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has regular meetings to make certain that that co-ordination happens across Government. The levelling-up missions themselves are jointly monitored by my right hon. Friend and by the No. 10 policy unit to ensure that they are effective and we get bang for buck.
