Local authorities react to Brexit

Posted on 27 June 2016

The Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC) has backed calls from the Local Government Association for more devolution to be granted to councils following Britain’s decision to leave the EU.

The Local Government Association (LGA) said earlier today that it believes much more power must be transferred from Westminster to communities.

“The important thing that has to happen now is the government must invite local authorities and involve them in the EU exit talks. We must ensure these talks are not used to further cut council budgets.
