Devolution seems to be less of a powerhouse and more of a pushbike. There were some useful announcements for London and some minor other announcements. I wonder whether a Conservative Chancellor with a Surrey constituency would trumpet City deals in Scotland ( which he did) if he had some meaty devolution news. Of course all is not lost and we must recognise that the Chancellor has to deal with a lot of challenges including a somewhat oddly constituted group of " deficit deniers" in his own party. Maybe not surprising that Devolution is on the backburner.
