West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson has met with Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid MP to discuss devolution.
After the meeting David Jamieson said,
“This morning I had a very productive meeting with the Secretary of State. We discussed the benefits that a strong Mayor could bring to the region.
“I firmly believe that a strong Mayor with a full range of powers could make a big difference to the West Midlands.
“We need a Mayor who will stand up for the region, and not just be a strong local voice, but able to deliver on their programme.
“I will continue to press government and bang the drum for a strong Mayoral role.”
