Labour leader Tony Blair has outlined a much stronger role for local government during his launch of the party's agenda for 1995 in London today.

Mr Blair said Labour would aim for a broad based national renewal to include policies that would raise educational standards, strengthen the country's industrial base and rebuild basic infrastructure.

He added that he wanted to 'revitalise our public services as public services serving the public interest' and promote 'policies to decentralise power and open up government to scrutiny'.

The Labour leader also said that 'the purpose of those policies is not to increase government but to empower people'
