Looks fine!
Hi,
I've decided to change it to this:

How powerful is the British central government [b]with regard to[/b] the funding and shaping of local policies, and control of local officials?

I think the second rendition is much better. In the first I would substitute "keeping in mind" for "having in mind".

However this is an American's thoughts.
