General Info

Andrew is at the forefront of teaching, writing and reflecting on the scrutiny process – broadly the equivalent of select committee in the national parliament - as it has developed in UK local government.

He developed one of the first post-graduate level assessed courses on the subject, and conducts training courses in Birmingham and across the UK for both councillors and council officers, and others interested in the subject and the issues it raises.

He recently edited the first book to be produced on the subject (Scrutiny: Theory and Practice in Local Government, University of Birmingham, 2010).

He heads a team at INLOGOV (John Cade, Simon Baddeley, Philip Whiteman) which gives the Institute a unique competence and strength in depth in this important and emerging area of local government theory and practice.
