Neil Kinghan, director of economic and environmental policy said:
put are heard by government. The LGA had pressed government to set out
example figures for each authority, we are pleased that this has happened. I
know individual councils will want to respond to these figures themselves.
'The LGA will be examining the overall responses and setting out a more
global response in due course. Local councils urgently need two further government actions to support their efforts to provide high quality public services:
* new investment for local council services in the next spending
* progress on setting up discussions on the balance of funding between
local and central government.'
