Hedge End Councillor Calls for English Devolution

Cllr Keith House was one of 122 council leaders calling this week for more powers to be transferred from Westminster to local authorities. Representatives of independent councillors and three of the five main English political parties wrote to The Observer. Their letter called for an end to Coalition Cuts in order to protect services such as libraries, leisure centres and road maintenance. They went on to insist a fair distribution of tax and spending could only come with the transfer of powers away from central government.

  1. I think I agree with him about this, but I would be much happier if we didn't have the three tier system of local government.That seems to get in the way sometimes, when decisions need to be made. It certainly wastes a lot of money...
