In 2019 Boris Johnson won an election with two promises: Complete Brexit & Level Up Britain.
The Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill was introduced into Parliament on 11 May 2022 with the objective of spreading wealth & opportunity across the UK, closing the gap on the most deprived areas and the richer region of London and the SE.
Bloomberg has produced an exclusive data analysis to track the government's own policy paper on levelling up and tracked the metrics on all 650 constituencies in the UK, comparing their performance to London and the South-East since 2019.
Have the government been successful in plans to start closing the gap or are we falling further behind?
