Zooming In: discussion questions

Every week, we share a set of questions designed for A Level economics students to discuss, written by teacher Will Haines.

1. What is 'levelling up' and how much progress has the government made in this area?

2. Identify and explain the main changes in council spending in recent years?

3. Evaluate whether it would be economically beneficial for Wales and Scotland to become independent as proposed by Plaid Cymru and the SNP respectively.
