Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee
The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee has announced a new inquiry into local government finance. Ahead of the Spending Review 2019 expected this autumn, the inquiry will consider how effective the existing funding set-up for local government is in providing resources to meet need and demand for local services both now and in the future. The Committee’s work will seek to directly inform government policy towards local government funding in the Spending Review and beyond.
The Committee is inviting submissions on:
Evidence given by Lord Porter of Spalding, Chair, Local Government Association, Cllr Paul Carter, Chair, County Councils Network, Cllr John Fuller, Chair, District Councils Network, and Frances Foster, Treasurer, SIGOMA (Special Interest Group of Municipal Authorities); Dr Jonathan Carr-West, CEO, Local Government Information Unit , and Andrew Carter, CEO, Centre for Cities (at 4.45pm); Alison Cox, Director of Cancer Prevention, Cancer Research UK, Jeanelle de Gruchy, President, Association of Directors of Public Health, and David Buck, The King’s Fund (at 5.30pm).
