The House of Lords last night debated the Local Government (Wales) Bill - in its committee stage - but failed to pass any amendments (Hansard, 17 January).

One amendment moved by Lord Keynon proposed a unitary Montgomeryshire while Lord Cledwyn of Penrhos proposed an elected Welsh Body to oversee the new unitary authorities.

'A Welsh assembly is therefore urgently needed to subject the functions and actions of the Welsh Office to proper public scrutiny, and to bring quangos under public democratic control.' said Lord Cledwyn.
