Graham Allen: Local government or a branch office for the centre?

Graham Allen MP press release

"Today's annual local government dependency grant announcement in parliament will underline again the need for serious talks to give English local government the same freedom, rights and independence that every other western democracy takes as standard.

"Even within the nations of the UK ,only England remains micro-managed from Whitehall and without a workable devolution settlement.

"Local government should get off its knees and demand its financial and political independence and Government should facilitate it by taking it's localism agenda the next logical step"
