Speaking at the Association of County Council's annual conference this morning, Mr Dobson said the shift in responsibilities from elected local representatives to appointed officials was getting 'out of hand'.
'Government appointed or self-appointed quangos now spend over £30bn of taxpayers' money each year which was previously under the control or influence of local authorities,' Mr Dobson said.
'But local people have no redress. They can't even find out what is going on. While local authoritis are rightly required to make their meetings open to the public, most quangos deliberate in deepest secrecy.'
'Both single and two tier local government are elected systems and both are better than the 'rent a creep' appointed alternative favoured by the government.'
