BBC News - Budget 2015: George Osborne sets out 'northern powerhouse' vision
[ Manchester X-times more affordable than London ] Also announced as part of the budget were plans to invest £11m in creating technology hubs in Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield. The sites will offer co-working space, meeting spaces and educational resources to entrepreneurs working in the digital sector. [...] Speaking about the announcement today, he said: "The deal is disappointing and doesn't match the scale of our ambition. It undermines the government's claim to want a strong northern powerhouse. "If we are to turn that into a reality we need real devolution, including fiscal devolution, to enable us to bring about a step change in the city region's economy." Councillor Andrew Carter, leader of Leeds City's Council's conservative party, said he wanted to to see an elected mayor in Leeds. "[It] will give proper public scrutiny and accountability to what will then be a Manchester style package of devolution, which has to be a good thing," he said.
