There is nothing like a Dame

Congratulations to Dame Margaret Eaton, past Council Leader of Bradford and more recently Chairman of the Local Government Association. Margaret joins Michael Howard and John Gummer in being elevated to the House of Lords as a working Peer.

Of course, the upper house’s gain will be local government’s loss. Margaret will, I’m sure be just as feisty and passionate there as she was at Local Government House over the Icelandic Banks or the haemorraging of government funding in recent years.

Margaret is a perfect ambassador for local government, and I’m sure she’ll continue to fight our corner from the benches of the Lords.
