Jobs for the north-east

A BLUEPRINT for the economy of the north-east has been published with the aim of generating tens of thousands of jobs.

It follows six months of fact-finding, led by the former Labour cabinet minister Lord Adonis. The Archbishop of Canterbury was on the group overseeing the review when he was Bishop of Durham. He stepped down and was replaced by the businessman Jonathan Ruffer, the owner of the investment company that donated £15 million to save the Zurburán paintings at Auckland Castle. The strategy seeks to create 60,000 private-sector jobs, and to double the number of apprentices.

It was commissioned by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership, set up almost two years ago to encourage economic regeneration in the area.
