    It’s a bit more complicated than that.

    The “committee made up of some members of the English Council and officers from each region” is the English Council Executive (ECE). The Regional Parties Committee (RPC) is a sub-committee of the ECE.

    I remember, many years ago, Tony Greaves describing the officers regional parties as “self-perpetuating cliques.” I winced rather as I was chair of the Yorkshire Liberal Federation (as it then was) but he was , and probably still is, right.
