Local government

Clause 7 of the Competition Principles Agreement extended elements of the National Competition Policy reform agenda to local government. States and territories undertook to work with local government to apply legislation review and reform, competitive neutrality and structural reform principles at local government level. Each state and territory published a policy statement in 1996 on the application of these principles to local government.
