Strathclyde RC has decided to co-operate on local government reform following Royal Assent last week of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, says The Herald (p1).

The Labour Party, too, has decided to drop its non-co-operation stance to concentrate on using the reforms to improve services in Scotland.

Strathclyde Labour leader Robert Gould criticised Labour Party colleagues for not giving full support to the survival of the region and thereby destroying 'the most viable Labour Party unit in the UK'.

The Labour Party still plans to oppose the timetable for reform, which it says is too tight.
