Repeal all legislation imposing enforcement duties on Local Authorities

Comment 7th July 2010

Local Authorities have a wide range of enforcment duties imposed on them; e.g. dealing with underage sales of fireworks, alcohol and tobacco, dealing with anti-social behaviour, noise nuisance and similar matters.


The traditional methods of investigating these (used for decades) are now considered surveillance and LAs are expected to get RIPA authorisation for them. As it appears certain that this authorisation wil be removed from councils, so should the duties as they will become ueforceable.  No tasks without the tools to do them!

Why does this matter?

Central government needs to consider if and how it will provide these services in the future
