Michael Lyons, who is currently undertaking an independent inquiry into the council tax system in England, will visit the next meeting of the assembly's local government and public services committee.

The Lyons inquiry is looking at how local government in England is funded, whether there should be changes to the current system of council tax and what those changes should be. The inquiry is based in England and will report to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, but Sir Michael has also been asked to consider the implications for other parts of the UK.

The assembly committee will be asking him about his findings so far and his early thoughts on the outcome of the inquiry. More details of the inquiry can be found here.

Committee chair Ann Jones said:

'We are delighted that Sir Michael is coming to address us. The Lyons inquiry could have far-reaching implications in Wales and members will be very interested in his views.'

The meeting will take place in Committee Rooms 3 and 4, Cardiff Bay, on 11 May.
