C’llr Magazine August 2016

August is traditionally the month for getting away to sunnier (or at least different) climes. So the special feature of the August edition of c’llr magazine is ‘Broader Horizons’ and we look abroad for some local government inspiration.

The c’llr interview is with Meg Hillier, the chair of the powerful Public Accounts Committee. We also take a little look at Brexit.
