Transcript of Outline the responsibilities of the different levels of government in the UK
The Multi-Regional Government has a lot of the same responsibilities as the two below it but they may delegate some of the tasks set to them to the lower forms of government. This again is an example of devolution a larger form of government handing down select power to the lower forms. Multi-Regional Government Central Government is the highest form of government in the U.K with all of the of the lower forms of government getting there budgets and things that they need to do given to them from what the cabinet (a group of high ranking government officials) see fit for that area.
The central government also have the same kind of responsibilities as the government sections below them. They give the lower forms of government there power through a process called devolve of power, they can give a certain amount of power to one of these lower forms of government so they can enforce things such as legislation's and laws which must be upheld they can do this by giving the police powers to use things such as tazers to stop a criminal if they are not complying with what they want him to do.
Central Government are the only form of government which must oversee the nations security as a whole by doing things such as defending our interests but they must also protect us from any threat set upon us by another nation or something like a terrorist organization. As central government they have to make sure that all the budgets that certain areas of government need such as the department of health or the MOD (ministry of defense). Central Government Central Government
Local Government Local government is the lowest form of government in the U.K they are the local councils so they only cover small areas. They get there power from a things devolved power which basically means that the central government delegate them a certain power to make sure that the fundamental laws that the government set are put into place. They must keep a certain amount of control on what they spend there budget on, so things like routines that need to be kept to like bin men services and street sweepers are kept in service so that the area that they governing is a nice and clean place. They will have to make sure that they spend some of the budget on things like renovations of council buildings making sure that there area is as nice as possible. A real positive of using the devolved power system is that the central government can control how much power the lower forms of government have so the local councils cant be corrupt with the amount of power that they have.
