27 July: Campaign for a Yorkshire Parliament

Do you believe that our county, our children, grandchildren and the generations still to be born deserve a better future than that offered by Westminster?

If so, please join the Campaign's launch event on:

Saturday 27 July

This event will bring together people from across the political spectrum and other, non-political participants, to discuss the key aspects of a Yorkshire Parliament.

  • Why a parliament?
  • What can it do for the people of Yorkshire?

  • How do we get one?
  • What powers should it have?
