The UK has three levels of Government - central, regional and local. This category is for sites relating to all aspects of government. This will include information on statutory bodies working to UK Ministries and various research organisations. Local government sites tend to be duplicated across the Open Directory. They are located in the Local Government category under English, Welsh or Northern Ireland Councils. They are also found in the appropriate regional category, eg the Wirral local government site ( can be found at: as well as at: Increasingly the dividing lines between the various levels of Government are becoming blurred as are the distinctions between private and public bodies. However if you are submitting a site and are in any doubt as to whether this IS the right category please be assured - ODP editors will redirect your site to a more appropriate category if necessary! For sites related to the UK's political parties please see: Society/Politics/Parties/UK For sites which relate to the current discussions on the European union and single currency see: Society/Politics/European_Union/Debates,_Campaigns,_Issues/
