Local Government: Devon and Norfolk

Volume 508: debated on Thursday 25 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what his plans are for the implementation of (a) the draft Exeter and Devon (Structural Changes) Order 2010 and (b) the draft Norwich and Norfolk (Structural Changes) Order 2010. (323092)

Following the approval by this House and the other place of the draft orders implementing unitary councils for Exeter and Norwich, I informed the House yesterday, Official Report, columns 38-41WS, that the Government had concluded it was right to proceed in making those orders, and that we intended to do so as soon as practicable. The orders were subsequently made yesterday and have come into force today.
