Nationalist parties in Scotland and Wales have both stressed local autonomy in their general election manifestos.

Each controls one council, Angus Council and Gwynedd Council respectively.

The Scottish National Party said it would 'reinvigorate local democracy' through community councils - the equivalent of parishes - which it said were 'integral building blocks of democratic renewal [but] are not functioning as effectively as they could be'.

Plaid Cymru said it would 'restore the morale of people working in the public services' by reducing bureaucracy.

The party also called for the replacement of council tax with local income tax.
