The Local Government Commission will have estimated the costs for the various options for reorganisation in Somerset, North Yorkshire and North Humberside within three weeks, environment under secretary Tony Baldry told Parliament yesterday.

In the case of Somerset he said:

'We have asked the commission how the costs and savings of the three unitary option recommended in their report might vary under alternative three unitary options that did not involve splitting Mendip.'

In the case of North Yorkshire and North Humberside, the commission's report gave estimates of costs and savings for a range of options for the whole review area north of the Humber.

The department has asked the commission to give a breakdown of costs and savings between the North Yorkshire area and the North Humberside area for three of the options in their report: those for eight unitary authorities, four unitary authorities and modified two tier.

'The estimates of potential costs and savings are important considerations that will inform our decisions,' Mr Baldry said.

'In both these cases we feel that further information on how costs and savings might vary between alternative options will help all concerned to assess which option is likely to be most cost effective.'
