HUDDERSFIELD MP Barry Sheerman will be among the speakers at a major conference this week focusing on the Yorkshire economy.
The Yorkshire Conference, which takes place on Friday at Leeds Metropolitan University, will hear from MPs and business leaders.
The event has been organised by research organisation Dods Engagement in partnership with Local Government Yorkshire and Humber and the Commons All Party Group for Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.
It will look at key regional differences on issues such as economic growth, skills and transport infrastructure.
The results will form part of a year-long report to Westminster.
