The Prime Minister’s also promised £900 million for a range of ‘shovel ready’ local growth projects in England over the course of the next two years, as well as £96 million to accelerate investment in town centres and high streets through the Towns Fund this year.

“Too many parts of this country have felt left behind, neglected, unloved, as though someone had taken a strategic decision that their fate did not matter as much as the metropolis,” he said.

“And so I want you to know that this government not only has a vision to change this country for the better, we have a mission to unite and level up – the mission on which we were elected last year. This is a government that is wholly committed not just to defeating coronavirus but to using this crisis finally to tackle this country’s great unresolved challenges of the last three decades.”

“To build the homes, to fix the NHS, to tackle the skills crisis, to mend the indefensible gap in opportunity and productivity and connectivity between the regions of the UK. To unite and level up.”

“To that end we will build build build. Build back better, build back greener, build back faster, and to do that at the pace that this moment requires.”
