Commenting on the government's Five Year Plan for local government*, Liberal Democrat shadow to the deputy prime minister, Edward Davey, said:

'Prescott's plan has a massive hole at its heart, and offers no commitment to transfer powers from his Whitehall empire to local governments?

'The deputy prime minister is happy to devolve councils' powers down to local neighbourhoods and communities. But there seems to be no hope of him devolving any of his own powers.

'There is no point Labour talking about stronger local democracy while they continue to tighten the reins. Change will only happen when we give local people real control.'
