Policy Library

The CLA is your voice in Government. We influence Government policy at local, national and European level by arguing our members' case from a strong base of evidence, informing key decision-makers and opinion-formers of our members' needs. CLA experts represent the interests of members at all stages in policy development and legislative process and regularly succeed in effecting significant change.
