The consultation on extending the remit of the Local Government Ombudsman to larger parish and town councils closed on 30 June and we are now carefully considering the 108 responses we received from parish and town councils, district councils, local government representative bodies and members of the public.

We are doing this in the context of our intention, as announced in the Queen’s speech, to publish in this Parliamentary session a draft Bill creating a single Public Service Ombudsman.
