NORTH-WEST MAJORITY DEMANDS DEVOLUTION

More than two in three people in the north-west want a directly elected regional assembly for their area, research has revealed.

The Vision 21 survey of 1,000 people, commissioned by the North West Constitutional Convention, showed 69% were in favour of regional devolution.

The public said they wanted an elected assembly because they thought it would improve the economic development of the region, bring government closer to the people and give a stronger voice to the north-west.

The most common criticism of the present system was that Westminster

did not give the north-west enough consideration.
