Column 582

The boundaries of the four proposed unitary authorities, which I intend to establish in April 1995, correspond to those of the existing district councils. Where the boundaries of unitary authorities and existing authorities coincide in this way I propose as a general rule to consult the local authorities concerned about the desirability of holding elections for the whole council in the May preceding the 1 April reorganisation date. Accordingly, I am now consulting the majority and minority groups on each district council, and Cleveland county council, to seek their views about whether or not elections should be held in May 1994. I will make a further announcement about the outcome of that consultation.

An order giving effect to the commission's recommendations for Cleveland, with the aforementioned modifications, will be laid before the House in due course. A copy of my letter to Sir John Banham has been placed in the Library.
