Edward raises concerns over the region's lack of lobbying for EU funds
Edward McMillan Scott, Lib Dem MEP for Yorkshire & Humber, said since the government's abolition the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward in 2010 there "is no longer a single voice speaking for the region's local authorities".
Much of Edward's work is focused on constituency issues, but as Vice-President of the European Parliament and Britain's most senior MEP, he uses his influence to pursue campaigns with an EU or worldwide scope. He is responsible for Democracy and Human Rights, Transatlantic Relations and the Sakharov Network for Freedom of Thought.
