    With the Conservative party re-elected at the General Election in May, it’s fair to say that LEPs are here to stay for the foreseeable future. That’s not to say that Ed Miliband would have got rid of them – in Lord Adonis’ Growth Review Labour made firm commitments to their continuation (though the party’s position on them since Jeremy Corbyn’s election is not yet clear) – more that there is unlikely to be any major upheaval of LEPs in the next few years. This is to be welcomed.
