Regions of EnglandThe region is currently the highest level of local government in England. The present policy of the UK Government is to increase the power of government at the regional level, as part of the "devolution" that led to elected assemblies in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and part of the concept of regions in the EU.
Elected assemblies are to be introduced in each region if desired by the population of the region in question. The people of the Northern regions, (North East England, North West England, and Yorkshire and the Humber) have expressed interest, and the Government plans to hold referenda there in a few years.
