With Local authorities in England spending around £148.9bn a year, sturdy accountability and corruption prevention measures are essential if the taxpayer is to obtain greatest value for money.

Corruption distorts the allocation of local resources and the performance of local governments. The traditional consequences of corruption are poor public services, increased social polarisation, inefficiency in public services, and decreased economic growth.
Transparency International UK (TI-UK) has concerns that recently passed legislation could seriously undermine the oversight structures that have helped to reduce corruption in local government and, as an unintended consequence, create an environment that greatly increases the risk of corruption.
TI-UK will be publishing a paper on corruption in local government on the 9th October 2013. This event will launch the report and feature a presentation of its main findings, as well facilitating discussion and debate on the issue through a pannel discussion.
