Abstract

The relationship between central and local government in Britain has changed rapidly since the early 1970s. Several factors have worked to produce an increasingly difficult central‐local relationship. These include: a gradual loss of confidence in the rates; increased use of grants for different purposes; the use of local government as an economic regulator, and changes in the economic and political landscape in Britain. Since the early 1980s, the relationship has altered enormously.
