Traditional Counties And The Local Government Commission
That this House welcomes the Draft Guidance to the Local Government Commission for England and in particular paragraphs 15 and 18, which are warmly endorsed by the Association of British Counties, as they stress the need for the Commission to have regard to county boundaries valued for reasons of tradition or history, and for the assessment of public support for new unitary authorities lying within the geographical area of counties for traditional reasons, though not for the purposes of council administration; and welcomes the prospect of the retention or re-introduction of traditional counties which would provide a focus for wider community loyalties in areas served by smaller unitary authorities.
This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
