Stephen Clarke, Resolution Foundation, outlines some of the key living standards facing the Sheffield City Region. Worryingly the delay to devolution means that local leaders will have fewer powers than their counterparts elsewhere to address these.

As a result it is important for the current impasse in the devolution process to be resolved.
