Case For Cornwall

I understand that the "Case for Cornwall" was sent by Cornwall Council to all the political parties on Friday. As below

Case for Cornwall

The Independent/Liberal Democrat administration say it will be published to Cornwall today. I have a copy because I sat on the cross party working group appointed by the Council. We were not allowed to delete any new powers which the Council was requesting and my efforts to have public consultation on the content of the document have been ignored.

The administration believe that it is more important to ask for powers now than to have the public's backing.

For example, it believes a public referendum should no longer be necessary for 'excessive rises' in council tax (see page 29).

If Cornwall had been asked would it agree? Is this really what the public expected to emerge from a 'fairer funding' campaign?
