Local authorities across the UK are on the front lines of the coronavirus response. Yet, following years of budget cuts, they are struggling to maintain core services as the crisis continues. How has local government responded to the pandemic? What more do local authorities need from central government? And how do they rate Westminster's coronavirus response? Spotlight, the New Statesman's policy supplement, is bringing together experts to discuss the challenges facing local governments at this unprecedented time.
Join Camden Council leader Georgia Gould, deputy director of the New Local Government Network Jessica Studdert, and Jamie Driscoll, mayor of the North of Tyne Combined Authority, for a live webinar exploring the local government response to the pandemic. The event will be chaired by special projects writer Jonny Ball. Spotlight will also present the results of an exclusive poll of local authority councillors during this online event.
