Today, I questioned the Secretary of State for
Levelling Up, Housing and Communities,
Michael Gove, on the Shared Prosperity
Fund funding for the poorest parts of
the country in response to the Levellingup White Paper. The 2019 Tory
manifesto promised not a single penny
would be lost in the transition from EU
development funding to Shared
Prosperity Fund. Yet we now know some
of the poorest parts of the UK will miss
out on £1 billion. I was pleased that
Michael Gove said he would meet my
colleagues and me to discuss this


The all-party parliamentary group on the UK shared prosperity fund, which I am proud to chair, has been calling on the Government to ensure that not a single penny is lost in the transition from the European structural funds to the SPF, but calculations by the Welsh Government confirm that the SPF will leave the UK close to £1 billion worse off and that Wales will get £750 million less. Will the Secretary of State meet our APPG to discuss how to ensure the nations and regions of our country do not get short-changed?
