Clause 69 — Ending of discretionary payments
Remembrance Day (Bank Holiday)
Brandon Lewis (Great Yarmouth, Conservative)
I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s generosity in giving way, but I would query what he is describing. Would it not go against the ethos of the Localism Bill, which is about trusting authorities with the responsibility to do what is right for their areas, and trusting the electorate to keep them in check so that they do just that?
