Decline or Rise of the Inner Cities On Election night, the Prime
Minister made the inner cities a top priority for her third term. A special Cabinet committee has been set up, a new
Ministerial overlord appointed and fresh initiatives are said to be in the offing. But are there any realistic prospects of restoring the decaying cities to prosperity, or should we just try to manage an inevitable decline? Will any hope for success founder on institutional rivalries between departments, corporations and central and local government?
