Lucy speaks in the Devolution Bill

In a debate about devolution, Lucy highlighted the success of Cambridgeshire: a world-class leader in education, research and entrepreneurship.  She identified how devolved powers may assist the region and asked for greater powers for the region including  the power to raise money itself so that it can invest in its future. She cited Antony Mattessich, the managing director of Mundipharma International, who said that unless Cambridge can address some of its critical infrastructure needs, it is at risk of losing its position as a desirable place for companies to start up or relocate to.
