Blog: The fairness (or otherwise) of the 2015-16 local government finance settlement

Blog: The fairness (or otherwise) of the 2015-16 local government finance settlement
Description
Written by Chris Game.

However, it hasn't, which is why I too am returning to the topic, which had its importance re-emphasised several times over the past week.
