The Government's Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill inquiry

Inquiry

Whitehall and local areas must go further with their devolution deals, says the Communities and Local Government Committee in its report 'Devolution: the next five years and beyond'. The Committee welcomes the Government's commitment to devolution but urges Government and local leaders to do more to engage the public in devolution proposals, negotiations and outcomes.
