Detail of outcome
Summary of responses and the government response to the ‘Future of local audit: consultation on secondary legislation’.
In August 2010, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government announced plans for new arrangements to audit local public bodies in England. Since then the government has consulted widely and worked with a range of partners to develop and refine our proposals.
In January 2014, the Local Audit and Accountability Act received Royal Assent. This secondary legislation is needed to give effect to the new local audit arrangements.
This consultation seeks the views of all bodies affected these arrangements and any other interested parties about the content of a large part of the proposed secondary legislation. Your contribution will help us to refine the regulations
The consultation, which begins on 20 June runs for a period of 4 weeks, with responses invited by 18 July 2014.
