HUMBERSIDE DELAY WILL NOT HOLD UP REFORM

A delay in a legal challenge by Humberside CC to the commission's recommendation that it should be abolished will not hold up the creation of new councils, DoE officials have told Hull City Council.

An application by Humberside for judicial review of the commission's decision - which has since been accepted by the government - has been held over until February next year.

The county had been assured that no parliamentary order would be laid until any judicial review had been considered by the courts.

This would have delayed the creation of new councils to replace the county until 1997.

North Yorkshire districts, led by York City Council, have commissioned pollsters MORI to test the popularity of a government decision to extend York's boundaries.
