LGA response to report by the Commons Public Accounts Committee on Brexit preparations

Cllr Kevin Bentley, Chairman of the Local Government Association’s Brexit Task and Finish Group, responded to a report by the Commons Public Accounts Committee on the speed of government departments Brexit preparations

“Negotiating our exit from the European Union is clearly a huge task and offers the opportunity to devolve powers to local communities beyond Westminster, Holyrood, Cardiff Bay and Stormont.

“We want to urgently work with the Government to help develop a fully-funded and locally-driven successor scheme to EU regional aid which will provide £5.3 billion for local regeneration schemes by 2020. With national funding for regeneration increasingly being depleted, a UK replacement for EU money will be vital to help create jobs, build infrastructure and boost growth.”

Government too slow to allocate skills and resources for Brexit
