Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS

Dear Sir or Madam,

CLGCOM in its 11th report of session 2004 -2005 made the following recommendation:

'The Commission for Local Administration in England is required to submit a review of its legislation, together with proposals on this, to the ODPM every three years. This is done in consultation with interested bodies. The Commission told us that the most recent review, which contained several recommendations to Government, was submitted in May 2003 and had not yet received a response from ODPM. ODPM informed us that although no response had been published, proposals made in the review had been the subject of discussions between the Commission and Department. The full departmental response is attached. While we welcome this action, there is a lack of transparency regarding the department’s reaction to the review. We recommend that ODPM publish a clear summary of what progress has been made in addressing the recommendations contained in the Commission for Local Administration in England’s 2003 Review.'

Please provide a copy of the ODPM / DCLG report, and a list of consultees and consultee responses.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS

Vanita Patel, Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities
