The Bigger, the Better
Unless the system is reformed, local government will be increasingly discredited and will be gradually replaced by agents of the central government.' (The Royal Commission on Local Government, 1969)
It has been a very painful first year for the reorganised system of local government. The new authorities have been accused of squandering money, empire-building and wasteful duplication; some observers regard them as more remote than the councils they replaced and there are doubts about whether local government even now controls its own destiny.
On the day when voters are deciding the future composition of many of these councils. Mary Goldring considers some of the problems and challenges facing the new system. Producer MICHAEL GREEN
