THE ADMINISTRATION

the administrative side of the required training. A national authority is required for this task.

(b) Councils
As has been said, administration is shared between central departments and some I,Goo elected county, borough, and district councils? To these must be added certain ad hoc authorities and joint boards, such as the Metropolitan Water Board, and drainage, catchment, and burial boards. The powers and areas of councils are created and limited by statute, and vary from one type of council to another, some functions being permissive and others obligatory. They include the provision of magistrates' courts, schools, libraries, baths, health services, hospitals, water-supply, drainage, fire service, police, housing, roads, public assistance, small holdings, and certain public enterprises such as gas, electricity, transport, and banking services. Councils levy rates, make bye-laws, and collect certain taxes-such as motor licences-on behalf of the Treasury.
The distinctive feature of this system is the fact of election, and the absence of any control by central government of the personnel of councils. They -thus provide some measure of training in self-government. Local officials of political parties often are to be found sharing in the government of their localities, even though these return a member of the opposing party to Parliament. The principle is democratic. It is limited in two ways. The supervision of the work of councils by Whitehall, with the limitations set by statute and control exercised through the grants-in-aid, is a method already mentioned. Since the course of this control is itself set by Parliament, this, however, is hardly a true restriction.

1 There are also over 7,000 parish councils, having little importance
