Memorandum by Mr Anthony Lenton (RG 03)
On the subject of regional government.
There is no need for a further tier of costly
regional government, the further government is from the people
the more remote and meaningless it becomes.
People want and need local government as it
is, and has been for generations. As the saying goes, if it isn't

Local government in the form of parish councils
and borough councils have served us well in the past, and I see
no need to change.
Regional government is an unelected unwanted
body of costly people working against the wishes of the majority
of the population, and should be dismantled, not replaced under
