Inner Cities: 'We Want Them Too'
So said Mrs Thatcher in the early hours of 12 June, just after her triumphant return to power. Tomorrow, on the first day of its conference in Blackpool, the Conservative Party debates a resolution that welcomes the government's commitment and success in the inner cities. But how successful has the government been and what exactly is it trying to achieve? Robin Denselow reports from the north west where two adjoining Labour inner-city authorities have responded to government policies in very different ways. Salford, home of the original
Coronation Street, is now trying to attract entrepreneurs to its mini-Docklands and has been selling off council estates. Rate-capped Manchester fears for the future of its services, and sees government initiatives as a threat to local democracy. So far, the government's inner-city policy has involved projects from three different Ministries. But what lessons has Mrs Thatcher 's government leamt from the success or failure of these policies so far?
