In a report on the publication of the Criminal Justice and Public order Bill, described as the most comprehensive and largest law and order package ever published, the Guardian reports (p1 December 18) that councils claimed it would cost £21 million to set up the new authorities.

These would be controlled by the Home office, it says, and reports the local authorities as condemning the measures as an expensive distraction from fighting crime.

Local authorities are to get powers against illegal campers and the present duty on councils to provide gypsy sites, which has existed since 1968, will be removed says the paper.
