Top figures from within local government will take part in an exciting debate on 20 May as part of an LGC live broadcast.
Sir Robin Wales (Lab), mayor of Newham, David Hodge (Con), leader of Surrey CC, and Stephen Hughes, adviser at the Local Government Association, will speak on a panel chaired by LGC editor Nick Golding.
David Rees, partner and head of local government services at PA Consulting, LGC’s partner for the webcast, will also join the panel in what promises to be one of LGC’s most engaging broadcasts of the year.
The experts will explore the result of the general election and what it means for local government over the next parliament. The panellists will discuss how the new ministers’ track records could be an indicator of policy, ministers’ in-trays, how local government must respond to their likely plans and the likely contents of the forthcoming comprehensive spending review.
The debate will be broadcast live from London at 10.30am on Wednesday 20 May. Register to watch it here for free.
The broadcast will also be available to watch on demand later on LGCplus.com.
