The change of name is one of a number of changes involved in the Government's plans for creating a unified service for England and Wales. These include structural changes which will involve the amalgamation of some area services and will make all of them more accountable for my right honourable friend the Home Secretary. The cost of changing the name is of itself expected to be minimal in this wider context.
