This work traces the main dimensions of the relationship between central and local government, concentrating in particular upon the role played by law in shaping that relationship. It is a neglected and important subject which has risen to prominence in the years of Conservative government since 1979. The book seeks to demonstrate that the issues raised by an examination of central-local relations transcend the institution of local government and are directly linked to the system of parliamentary democracy, and to the tradition of public law.;This work should be of interest to teachers and students of local government law and politics, as well as administrative and consitutional law and British politics generally; and to practitioners who undertake local government work.
