This category tree is for websites relating to all aspects of government in The United Kingdom.
The UK has three levels of Government - central, regional and local.
Central:
Each of the four countries of the UK are represented in the House of Commons,
by Members of Parliament.
Regional:
Three of these countries have devolved powers;  Northern Ireland Assembly,
The Scottish Parliament  and  National Assembly for Wales.
England is not devolved from the UK Parliament, but the population of London alone exceeds these,
and has the regional division London Assembly administered by the Mayor of London
Statutory bodies working with UK Ministries and various research organisations,
may also have websites listed in sub-categories here.
Local:
Local government websites tend to be duplicated across DMOZ.
  1. Once at the most appropriate  Locality for the scope of their administration,
  2. Together as a UK Topic, according to EU Electoral Region (eg -  Nine for England ),  County, Unitary Authority, District Council and Parish Council.
