Legal & General boss criticises Government’s levelling up efforts as data shows UK has taken ‘a step back’ in some areas of life


The boss of Legal & General has criticised the Government’s levelling up efforts as data showed the UK had taken ‘a step back’ in some areas of life. 

L&G’s Rebuilding Britain Index, which tracks quality of life, showed that in 12 months there had been declines in healthcare and housing access, but less unemployment.

The index highlighted that the UK had ‘yet to show significant signs of rebuilding’. 

L&G chief executive Nigel Wilson said ‘more local’ focus was needed. 

‘Levelling up is too often talked about as London, the wider regions and devolved nations. Arguably, this doesn’t go far enough.’
