In our submission as a parish council to the Department of the Environment's consultation paper on The Structure of Local Government in England, we wrote: 'The parish council considers that the county council has an important strategic role to play . . . and should be retained.' (12 June 1991).
We concluded: 'It is essential that, where present authorities are serving their communities well, this arrangement should not be altered for the sake of change.'
I wonder how many similar comments the Government has not received.
