Responding to the news that Rt. Hon. Greg Clark MP has become the Secretary of State at the Department of Communities and Local Government, David Hodge, Chairman of the County Councils Network, earlier this week stated…

“We congratulate the new Secretary of State on his well-deserved promotion and look forward to working with him.

He has been a staunch champion of devolution so we very much hope that we can discuss the benefits of extending freedoms and flexibilities to co-ordinate economic growth and job creation beyond cities and into counties.

By working together we can improve public services and public finances while helping the whole country prosper.”
