Local Government Financial Statistics publication - user consultation

DCLG currently have a statutory obligation to lay a summary of the financial returns received from local authorities, as part of section 168(4) of the Local Government Act 1972.

However, with on-line publication of statistical releases, and the ability to provide detailed data with these releases, we want to consider whether the LGFS is still relevant and whether there are better ways to provide summary information.

We would be grateful if you could complete this short survey about your use of the LGFS and your views on a future publication.

This survey will run for 6 weeks and end on Tuesday 16 February 2016.

Your views will be treated in confidence. If you require any further assistance on this survey, please contact lgfstats@communities.gsi.gov.uk.
