We have recently undertaken the statutory consultation on the unitary proposal submitted by seven Northamptonshire councils, and my Right Honourable Friend, the Secretary of State, now intends as soon as practicable to decide whether, subject to Parliamentary approval, to implement that proposal. We do not therefore intend to make a request under section 4 of the 2007 Act for the Local Government Boundary Commission to advise on that proposal.
