Alan Milburn lectures on New Localism

Guardian Unlimited Politics | Special Reports | Call to empower neighbourhoods: "In a Demos lecture, the former minister Alan Milburn floated the idea of allowing local groups limited levy-raising powers as part of the New Localism agenda."

So, he does so something.

Of course, it must have been a very short lecture, if this is all he said. None of his arguments for allowing levy-raising powers made it into this article, but lots of (very good) counter-arguments did. If onlt there was a way Alan Milburn could make sure all his arguments were available to everyone.
