The Department for Communities and Local Government has confirmed that almost all of their civil servants responsible for the Northern Powerhouse project are based in London.
They also confirmed that 91.8 per cent of their core policy civil servants were also based in the capital.
The information came to light following a written Parliamentary question by Labour’s Louis Haigh, MP for Sheffield Heeley.
