As was the case with previous consultations on combined authorities which this Government has undertaken, when launched we wrote to all of the statutory consultees and others whom, as statute provides, the Secretary of State considered it appropriate to consult. In this case, the statutory consultees are the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the ten local authorities within the Greater Manchester area, and other appropriate consultees were considered to be the local enterprise partnership and the Business Leadership Council. In addition the consultation document has been placed on the Government’s website and as the paper states “The Secretary of State will also have regard to any comments received from members of the public and others”.
