Tories would scrap Best Value regime

    Comprehensive performance assessment and Best Value would be
    scrapped if the Conservatives came to power, Michael Howard said
    last week.

    The party’s leader told the conference that he would “immediately
    abolish” both regimes as they took up “so much valuable staff time,
    cost so much and interfered so greatly in the day-to-day work of
    local councils”.

    Commenting on the Commission for Social Care Inspection,
    Conservative councillor Nick Skellett added: “I do not believe a
    single inspectorate is sufficient but greater co-ordination is an
    excellent idea.”
