Radical plans to encourage staff to move between local and central government and the private sector will be debated by Liberal Democrats next week.

The party's annual conference in Bournemouth will see calls for the creation

of a masters degree in Public Policy and Administration 'to develop management expertise in the public sector'.

The opening debate on Monday morning on 'reforming governance in the UK' will discuss the motion that introducing the single transferable vote system in local elections is 'an urgent priority'.

Lib Dems are set to endorse calls to reduce the central bureaucracy imposed on local education authorities and remove funding disparities.

In a debate on planning moved by environment spokesman Don Foster MP, there will be calls for objectors to appeal against planning decisions - a move also demanded by the Tories.
