The Queen has approved the appointment of The Lord Gisborough, at present Lord-Lieutenant of Cleveland, as Lieutenant of North Yorkshire.

The appointment will date from 1 April 1996 when, under the changes brought about by the reorganisation of local govermnent in England, the county of Cleveland will disappear and those parts of Cleveland south of the Tees become part of the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire.

Lord Gisborough, 68, has been Lord-Lieutenant of Cleveland since 1981. He will remain Lord-Lieutenant of Cleveland until 31 March 1996. Thereafter he will be a member of the Lieutenancy of North Yorkshire.

Sir Marcus Worsley will remain the Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire. He will be assisted by Lord Gisborough as Lieutenant, primarily in those areas of the new ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, which were part of Cleveland.

Those parts of the former Cleveland that become part of the ceremonial county of Durham will come within the responsibility of the Lord-Lieutenant of Durham, David Grant.

A number of Lord-Lieutenants whose ceremonial counties disappeared as a result of local government reorganisation were appointed as Lieutenants in their new counties in 1974. Lord Gisborough is the only Lord-Lieutenant affected in this way by the present series of changes. His appointment as Lieutenant is on a personal basis.
