Ed Miliband speech on giving power to English cities

Labour is proposing to give more power and money to English cities outside London and the regions around them.

Under its plans, councils would get to control how they spend extra income generated from business rates.

In a speech in Leeds, Labour leader Ed Miliband will say councils can work together to be "economic powerhouses" leading investment in infrastructure, skills and economic regeneration.
