An enquiry presented by GRAHAM ASHWORTH
Discussion of local government reform has centred on reorganisation of its structure. With the Government's response to the proposals of the Maud Commission still awaited, two schools of thought, represented broadly by the County Councils Association and the Association of Municipal Corporations, seem to be irreconcilably opposed.
Does the solution to the problem lie in a much greater break with tradition than any so far suggested? Speakers include:
LORD REDCLIFFE-MAUD DEREK SENIOR
J. K. BOYNTON. Clerk to Cheshire County Council j. c. SWAFFIELD, Secretary of the Association of Municipal Corporations
FRANK HARRIS , formerly Principal City Officer and Town Clerk, Newcastle upon Tyne ALDERMAN ERNEST WISTRICH
Produced by STANLEY WILLIAMSON (from Manchester)
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
