About John Philip Hall
I live in Follifoot village, near Harrogate and ran my own business for 30 years. Between work and family, I made time to volunteer to teach cycling proficiency at local schools.
I support green transport and more rail links. North Yorkshire’s bid for £116 million to fund bus improvements has been denied by Westminster. We’ll keep getting nothing until
Yorkshire has proper, powerful devolution through a regional parliament. We have the same population as Scotland, an economy 50% larger than Wales, yet the rights and funding of neither.
Local agriculture needs support during these difficult times but, like so many of Yorkshire’s past industries, Westminster does nothing to help.
The Yorkshire Party was founded on the principles of localism – we believe communities should make the decisions that affect them. Westminster will listen only to your vote; vote Yorkshire Party on the 5th May.
