PM and chancellor launch northern charge

David Cameron and George Osborne made a joint appearance in Manchester yesterday, reiterating promises to boost investment and growth in northern England. The PM and chancellor pledged to create 100,000 jobs, build 25,000 homes and ensure that 75,000 more pupils attend good or outstanding schools. A feasibility study will also be launched into a trans-Pennine road tunnel that would cut journey times by 30 minutes. The Conservatives have promised to create a 'northern powerhouse' in the UK, linking cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield and Hull to give the scale needed to compete internationally.
