Progress towards devolution of powers to local authorities in Cumbria
The BBC's report Cooper has tweeted a short clip of Northern Powerhouse minister James Wharton MP @jameswhartonuk talking about a possible Cumbria devolution package which I know they have been talking to council leaders in Cumbria about.
Apparently there will be more about this on the Sunday Politics show on BBC One at 11am on Sunday.
