Coalition Agreement 2010 Summary
In the banking system, the agreement announced various reforms to “prevent a recurrence of the labour financial crisis” and stimulate credit flows, including the introduction of a bank levy and control of unacceptable bank bonuses and regulatory reforms. Westminster coalition government in 2010 (406 KB, PDF) – A communal tax freeze “for at least one year” – two years if local authorities agree. This indicates a coalition compromise – the Conservatives had previously promised a two-year freeze imposed centrally. There will be a review of Council funding and housing. Town halls will have more freedom to decide for themselves how to proceed, and they will be subject to a less arduous inspection regime. City councillors have the power to vote on pay packages for council executives. The legislative elections resulted, for the first time since February 1974, in a distanced Parliament, where no party was elected to the House of Commons. As a result, the first and third parties, in terms of votes and seats, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, began negotiations to form a full coalition, the first since World War II. Housing could be another source of tension. The coalition`s decision to abolish regional home-building targets was welcomed by the South East of England councils, which had strongly opposed them. But there will be concerns that this, as well as the promise of greater local control over planning decisions, will fuel nimbytism, making it more difficult to revive the domestic construction industry and worsen the housing shortage. Jessica Shepherd`s analysisThe coalition government has agreed to advance conservative plans to allow parents, teachers and charities to create their own schools.
The coalition will “significantly reduce the number of health quangos.” None of the people scheduled for the mug have been identified, but speculation suggests that the Food Standards Agency and the National Agency for Patient Safety – where Sir Liam Donaldson, the outgoing chief medical officer, will become the new president – could be among the most vulnerable. This was published under the analysis of Alan Travis` conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government from 2010 to 2015 The agreement paves the way for the review of the broader bans on Islamist extremist groups, but with the cautious restriction that they must “be submitted to the police and security and intelligence councils.” This may result in the refusal of more cases of public funds than total prohibitions such as those of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, which have been called for in the past by Conservative spokesmen. The position on control orders seems to realize that despite a Liberal Democrat plan to remove control orders, there is not yet an effective alternative. The strategy of seeking more “non-torture” agreements to deport terrorism suspects has already been attempted almost to the point of labour`s exhaustion, but this allows the coalition to bypass the direct debate on the Human Rights Act. In individual prisons and convictions, coalition negotiators have ordered a review of the sentence to organize the circle between David Cameron`s campaign promises of longer sentences and Lib Dem`s obligation to reduce the application of sentences by six months in prison.
