With respect to the views of the public, the Mori poll did find a comparatively low awareness of the review among those interviewed, only 36 per cent claiming to know about it. Yet more than one in three of those interviewed (35 per cent) agreed with the need to change to unitary local government.
Councillor Todd also neglected to state that all the councils in Oxfordshire - both district and county - have come out in favour of unitary authorities. The county wishes to have a single authority. The districts are unanimously agreed on four authorities as representing the best solution for the future of local government in Oxfordshire.
