Recommendation 10:
The Conservative Party needs a powerful campaigns and policy centre in the north of England – perhaps Leeds.  Functions from CCHQ that do not need to be in London should migrate there.  The northern HQ should coordinate regional media and be headed up by a charismatic, political figure.  It should have the special task of recruiting talented new candidates and developing policies for urban Britain.  It mustn’t be just a campaigns centre but a genuine home for thinking about the challenges of England’s northern cities and local governments.

The final two recommendations will be posted tomorrow.
