The Council of Welsh Districts has spoken out against the Welsh Secretary's plans for area committees in Powy and other counties which they say will create a two tier system that will cause even more confusion than the present one.

At a meeting in Llandrindod Wells a special report spelt out the disadvantages of the plans including bad co-ordination between services and confused relationships with health authorities, housing associations, the police, voluntary organisations and local businesses.

The CWD pointed out that its proposals for 27 unitary authorities would avoid the question of recourse to area committees.

Tom Williams, CWD Chairman, said: 'By making a few minor amendments to the boundaries of the unitary authorities proposed in the white paper, Mr Redwood would make this whole complex and time wasting debate on the nature and roles of area committees redundant.'
