Camden LBC chief executive Steve Bundred writes in the Guardian's society pages (p7) about the reaction to Labour's plans for local government.

He asks why the unusual step of a prime minister writing a pamphlet on the way forward for local councils has met with such a muted response from authorities who are mostly under Labour control.

'It certainly does not imply any flaw in the Blair analysis,' writes Steve Bundred. 'The Prime Minister sees local government as vital to the fulfilment of key Labour pledges, such as raising educational attainment and tackling social exclusion and he is right to do so.'
