Concern over Yorkshire's lack of lobbying for European funding

Local MEPs have claimed the Yorkshire and Humber region could miss out on European funding due to a lack of lobbying.

Last week a meeting took place in Brussels to allocate the next round of money for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Edward McMillan Scott, Lib Dem MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, said since the government's abolition the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward in 2010 there "is no longer a single voice speaking for the region's local authorities".
