Abstract

he case for elected English regional government outside London has lost momentum, but the machinery of regional governance continues to expand. This paper explores the significance of this process through an examination of the evolution of Regional Assemblies. Each has progressed differently, but all Assemblies lack political legitimacy and resources and have struggled to mobilize influence in Whitehall and their regions. Although contributing to greater coherence in regional governance, their future is uncertain and there is a need to assess systematically what tasks Assemblies should perform, and why, and the resources required for their delivery.
