Communities and Local Government Select Committee – Call for evidence on fiscal devolution to cities and regions

This cross party committee intends to examine whether and how fiscal and financial powers could be devolved to London and English cities. The Committee invites written submissions on the concept and on its detailed operation. The Committe invites views in relation to a range of devolved powers including geographical scale; governance and accountability; evidence to support economic growth and infrastructure investment; impact on areas not included in any new devolution arrangements; whether reform of the existing system (for example, re-banding council tax, revaluing business rates, Community Budgets, Government grants, formulas and taxes such as stamp duty) would be a precursor to, or run along with, large-scale constitutional change.
