Consultation description

In May 2013, the government introduced the Local Audit and Accountability Bill into Parliament. If the Bill is enacted, secondary legislation will be needed to give effect to the new local audit arrangements.

This consultation seeks the views of all interested parties on the content of a large part of the proposed secondary legislation. Your contribution will help us to refine the regulations that were introduced as the Bill was progressing through the House of Commons on 31 July 2013.
