THE ADMINISTRATION

needs to be done, and no one is more anxious for the required reforms than the better local government officer himself, as the frequently expressed views of the National Association of Local Government Officers testify.
The local council works through committees-for education, housing, health, finance, libraries, public assistance, etc. -to which it delegates its functions. These often have outside experts as co-opted members. To assist and advise the committee and carry out its decisions there is an official with the requisite subordinate staff. This, if we consider the national administration of that particular service as a whole-be it police, education, or any other service actively supervised by a central department-must be regarded as forming a local extension of that central department, acting in limited independence. This official stands in relation to the committee in much the same way as the permanent undersecretary in Whitehall does to the minister. The way in which he is recruited is therefore of the first importance.
The Clerk of the Council is its chief general adviser; he has also certain statutory duties, such as the registration of electors, births, and marriages. Mainly for this reason a lawyer is generally appointed. He is not a chief officer with the duty of co-ordinating the whole service; nor does he control the appointment of all other officials. This central co-ordination and control is lacking except in the very rare cases where the Clerk has such personality that he makes the position for himself. This is probably the most serious defect in British local government, and there is much to be said for the argument that an administrator rather than a lawyer should be appointed. Such an official should advise the council on all matters of policy, including the selection of
