Select Committee on the Rural Economy

Our Chief Executive Graham Biggs MBE gave evidence today (16th October 2018) to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Rural Economy.  

He responded to a number of questions on the Rural Economy and here is a snippet of him talking about the Fair Funding Review of Local Government Finance (click below):

Graham stresses that 'historically rural areas have been majorly underfunded in comparison to urban areas' and there 'is a need for fair distribution of whatever funds this country can make available to fund local services.'
