The Spending Review and Local Government Finance

Inquiry

This inquiry will consider what approach the Government should take to funding local government as part of the 2020 spending review. It will investigate the current financial health of local authorities and their ability to deliver services, including the additional pressures caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In light of continued delays to the multi-year spending review, the Committee will also examine the impact of single year settlements on the ability of councils to plan and deliver services in the long-terms.
