Goodbye AWM

Rumour suggests that Vince Cable's rearguard defence of the Regional Development Agencies in the midlands and north has definitely come to naught and Cllr Eric Pickles has won the battle to abolish the lot.

The prospect of a local partnership dominated by the parochialism of the city council is not going to cheer the Chamber of Commerce or the wider business community one little bit. Fortunately, it looks as there will be very little money to be wasted, as we already know that the big savings only come through scrapping the investment funding, not just the administrative costs of the RDAs.
