The goals that the Yorkshire Devolution Movement campaigns for can be categorised into three broad areas:
- Model of Devolution – A Parliament for Yorkshire, directly elected by the people of Yorkshire, with subsidiarity at all sub-regional levels.
- Powers of Devolution – Powers inferior to no other devolved administration within the UK and leading to federalism.
- Geography of Devolution – The whole of the Historic County of Yorkshire, as declared in The Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity, as a single devolved/federal region of the UK.
This News & Blog article is in respect of the Geography of Devolution.

For that reason, we are pleased to bring to your attention publications that help achieve that recognition.
Amongst these are:
And two books by Terry Ashby:
“More Than A Line On A Map” is Terry’s latest book. The Yorkshire Society has published a great article giving further detail regarding both author and book on their website.
