TitleLiberal Discussion on Local Government
Extent2 leaves
DescriptionNotes on unsatisfactory state of British local government, outlining the difficulties created by our two-tier structure, wherein Council officials act as advisors to elected councillors, who may choose to take or ignore their advice, as they please. Contrasts with American situation, where City officials 'do the work.' Asks how we can attract more (and better) candidates; suggests current work demands are too great; streamlining of committees, and development of regional government.
