Edinburgh City Council's Labour administration decided this week to make preparations for local government reorganisation, despite their party's national advice of non co-operation, The Scotsman reports (p6).

The Labour group voted unanimously for a motion to instruct council officials to 'draw up proposals . . . to deal with the foreseeable effects of the change to unitary authorities'.

Labour group leader Lesley Hands denied the move was a rejection of national party policy.

The motion expressed concern that there were still no laws on the statute book eight months before elections to the new authorities were due to start, the paper reports.
