ANTI-UNITARY TORY LOBBY GETS TO MINISTERS

Warrington Conservatives - who met environment minister Paul Beresford earlier this week arguing against a recommendation from the Local Government Commission that the town should split from Cheshire and become a unitary authority - have claimed that ministers 'now understand the strength of local feeling about the issue.'

The delegation included the prospective Conservative candidate for Warrington South, Chris Grayling, and two councillors.

The Warrington Conservative Association said in a statement yesterday - coinciding with the environment secretary's announcement that no new unitaries would be created in 1997 - that they expected the government to publish its decision on the LGC recommendation for the area in about two weeks time.

'I hope that the government will now decide that Warrington should remain in Cheshire,' Mr Grayling said.
