long term needs.

Speaking on starting his new role, Jones said he was ‘delighted’ to be
joining the LGA ‘at a time when there are so many opportunities to influence
change in the way public services are delivered’.

’The vital role that councils play in this is increasingly recognised and all
involved agree that there needs to be more devolution of power to local
councils,’ he added.
