Sheffield may lose £180m of EU funding said David Cameron.
£180 million in European funding planned for the Sheffield City Region may now be at risk said Prime Minister David Cameron.
The planned funding would have been used to create more jobs in the city, boost training and economic growth but as a result of Britain leaving the EU the hopes and fears of Sheffield residents are now in limbo.
The Prime Minister said time will tell if the funding will be affected.
Professor of EU law at Sheffield University Tamara Hervey, encouraged residents to lobby their MP to find out the detail of any new deal.
Sheffield’s leave campaign won by 6,000 votes – 51 per cent of the total vote. On a turnout of 67 per cent, Sheffield mirrored the national picture, where 51 per cent of people also voted to leave.
Sheffield may not only be the main city which will be affected by the leave campaign, funding around the country will now be in jeopardy due to Brexit.
