Regional Referendum

Asked about the regional offices set up around Britain, presumably as templates for regional assemblies, in effect unelected quango’s, whether now that this prospect was effectively off the agenda if the Government was content to carry on with these unelected quango’s making important regional decisions the PMOS said that in terms of the detail he should speak to the ODPM but in terms of ensuring that there were important coherent regional voices that were reflected in Government that was something that would continue and indeed the Government was anxious for it to continue.

  1. and there was me thinking that my elected member of parliament was the "coherent regional voice" for this area – silly me 🙂
    but then again on reflection its Michael Foster so no hope there then 😉
