Podcast Episode - Is Westminster listening?

Carole Walker, is a former political news correspondent with the BBC.  She has developed her own Podcast called 'The View from Here' and has kindly allowed the Rural Services Network to include it on their website.

Talking about the Podcasts, Carole says "These podcasts will explore the issues which matter to you in your local community. They will focus on the concerns of people living in rural areas and small towns who often struggle to ensure their voices are heard in the corridors of power. This is politics outside the Westminster bubble."

This episode, is titled 'Is Westminster listening?' and features Norman Lamb MP  who details how Whitehall does not understand the needs of rural communities and calls for more power to be devolved to local bodies.
The podcast is available  by clicking below:
