    Charlotte Rose

    BBC Radio Sheffield Political Reporter

    None of Sheffield's Labour MPs say they will support a Yorkshire-wide devolution deal.

    Louise Haigh, Clive Betts, Paul Blomfield, Gill Furniss, Angela Smith and the Bassetlaw MP John Mann say they prefer the Sheffield City Region deal instead.

    They say a deal based on economic activity is the best option.
