All members are encouraged to participate in this process, by submitting proposals and amendments, as well as vote for representatives to sit on the Forum. The regional representatives take forward proposals from members in the [name of Euro-​constituency] to the NPF. Still, some Labour MEPs tried to involve their constituency in EU debates.

elected at the Ard Fheis with the remainder elected by the Comhairle Ceantairs. However the motion was not taken and instead an amendment, proposed by Garland, to expand the Ard Comhairle to 25 with 12 regional representatives as well as the President, was passed. The election to the Ard Comhairle seemed to indicate that those in favour of changing electoral policy had the support of a majority of the delegates. Goulding topped the list, followed by Costello, Garland, De Burca and Mac Stíofáin. Johnston did not put his name forward although he had been reelected to the

, but that the results are more uncertain. A major attempt by the Northwest Russian federal subject to gain influence in fisheries management was made in the early 1990s. Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and Karelia established fisheries departments under their regional administrations in 1993–94 and demanded a say in the quota distribution, then dominated by Sevryba, which, in reality, functioned as a regional representative of the State Committee for Fisheries. In late 1993, the Governor of Murmansk Oblast boasted about having reached an agreement with the Committee that the

the regional representative of the Miners’ Welfare Fund, Captain Mason, to cut costs by organising a united film booking scheme for Halls and Institutes failed to gain much support.70 Most Institutes were highly independent, and their members cherished (and indeed protected) that independence.71 However, while each Institute was self-governing, as far as film-booking patterns are concerned, similar arrangements were undertaken elsewhere. The minute books of Tredegar Workmen’s Institute, for example, reveal that the committee booked films from a mixture of American

­provided for regional programs, the relationship between the regions and Head Office were not unproblematic. At the beginning of the war, regional representatives showered Head Office with memoranda protesting the lack of regional representation in the programs,52 and intermittently continued to complain about a lack of adequate representation in the Home Service.53 As late as 1943 Percy Edgar, the Midland Regional Director, who had been with the BBC since the beginning, called for more “regional-mindedness” in the program departments in London, complaining “that
