The author reflects on whether or not the British government will impose statutory control over local councils who will cut their voluntary sector budgets to make up for the government spending cut in 2011-2012. He cites a survey showing that 34 British local councils are cutting their voluntary sector budgets by 19% as the British government cuts it fiscal budget by 27%. He wonders about what statutory control would do to the government's commitment to localism and the possible legal and constitutional battles this would entail.
