SfE: The Standards for England 2010 Annual Assembly, ‘A place for Standards’, has now been cancelled.
This decision follows recent Government proposals to introduce provisions in the Decentralisation & Localism Bill to ‘abolish the Standards Board regime’.
The event was due to take place at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Birmingham, on October 18 & 19 2010. However, given current uncertainty about any future local standards arrangements it did not feel appropriate to continue with the event. Its priority now is to ensure that a full refund policy is put in place.
