Cleveland CC chief exeuctive Bruce Stevenson today said that the overall results of the Mori polls were full of 'mixed messages' and certainly do not provide anything like a 'ringing endorsement of the Local Government Commission's initial draft recommendation in favour of four unitary authorities.'

Support for splitting services among three or four unitary authorities came from 23%, says Cleveland. Mr Stevenson commented: 'What is remarkable is that of the three most highly-supported preferences, two were options which the Local Government Commission did not even regard as worthy of consideration in tehir initial report.

'The most highly-supported, the status quo, was not listed by the commission in either its report or in its public consultation leaflet, nor was the option of a single Cleveland-wide authority.'
