§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Lord Whitty)
Under our Central Local Partnership arrangements, the Local Government Association (LGA), is a member of the Government's Human Rights Task Force. Jointly with the LGA we have issued to every council copies of our introductory guidance,Putting Rights into Public Service, and councils will receive more detailed guidance for public bodies, to be published shortly. We are continuing to work with the LGA to enable councils to have the advice they need from central government.
