Local Authorities and Outside Organisations is the first specialist work in an area of local government finance which has been revolutionised by the ""externalisation"" of services, the establishment of partnerships with the voluntary and private sectors, and the need to tap into private finance. The book describes and discusses the law relating to local authorities and their relationship with companies in which they have an interest. It examines the legal nexus between company, charity and local authority law, especially the provisions of Part V of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 and the consequent delegated legislation. Also provided is sufficient legal background to enable local authority lawyers and their accountants to apply the company law regime of Part V in the context of their local authority.
