A report into reforming local government in Scotland has been 'kicked into touch' according to senior figures.
The controversial Kerley report recommends proportional representation, increased member allowances and reducing the number of members on many councils.
A spokeswoman for the Executive said a ministerial group is still considering the report. She said: 'It's very complex and ministers want to consider it fully.'
A spokesman for Charlie Gordon (Lab), City of Glasgow Council leader, said the report has been ignored by first minister Henry McLeish.
