Free PDF Download

NLGN invited two of local government’s most noted thinkers and commentators, Lord Michael Bichard and David Walker, to go head to head and argue the case, centralism versus localism. From a centralist perspective David Walker kicks off the discussion with the localist Lord Bichard providing his responses.

This piece takes the form of three rounds of responses between David and Michael and has been lightly edited by NLGN with the agreement and endorsement of both contributors.
