The Boundary Commission today presents the options to the government as to

how local government could be reorganised if certain parts of England vote

for regional assemblies.

BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported that people in Cheshire, Cumbria,

Durham and Northumberland would have to choose between unitary councils

based either on the county council or on amalgamations of districts. One

option is to combine Lancaster City Council with two Cumbrian authorities.

Deputy prime minister John Prescott has six weeks to decide which options

whould be put to the vote alogside the referendums on regional assemblies.
