In the fifth session of oral evidence for its inquiry examining localism, the Communities and Local Government Committee will be asking a range of questions about measures proposed within the Localism Bill including the new General Power of Competence.
The committee will be asking ministers from Home Office and from the Department for Work and Pensions to describe the steps underway in their own departments to promote the kind of decentralisation of decision-making and service design anticipated by the Bill.
