The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has appointed a cross-party group of parliamentarians in its presidential roles at its Annual General Meeting on 26 October 2021.
Baroness Ros Scott of Needham Market has become the new president of NALC. The Liberal Democrat peer took up the role, which became vacant when Conservative peer Baroness Jane Scott stood down after becoming a government whip.
NALC has also changed its rules to introduce the new position of parliamentary vice-president. Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle (Green), Andrew Gwynne MP (Labour), Lord O’Shaugnessy (Conservative) and Lord Lytton (cross-bencher) was appointed to this role.
