Summary of Green House's evidence submitted:
- Devolution for England as a single block would have the effect of further entrenching the centralising power of Westminster within England, in a contrary trend to the decentralisation of power to Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. We argue that this is undesirable.
- Power should be devolved within England to ‘sub-regions’: cities, counties, and city-regions.
- This should be within a framework to ensure fair allocation of finance and the reduction of adverse environmental and resource impacts.
- Other changes should include electoral reform and new constitutional arrangements to safeguard the interests of future generations.
