West Midlands NO!

Regional government: unelected, undemocratic, unaccountable and unwanted

Unelected Business Leaders on City Region Executive Board

Posted by wonkotsane on October 1, 2006

A group consisting of business leaders in Birmingham and the Chambers of Commerce for the West Midlands euroregion has been offered a place on the executive board of the city region.

These business leaders have never been elected to a local authority and are not subject to scrutiny by any electorate yet they will be able to make or affect decisions on such important policy areas as planning, environment and health in the city region.

The whole board of the city region will be undemocratic and unrepresentative with members insulated from the responsibility that an elected representative has to serve their constituents.
