Second reading of Local Government Bill [HL]

22 October 2010

Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, introduced the second reading of the Local Government Bill [HL] in the House of Commons on Thursday 21 October.


The Bill gives effect to the Coalition Government’s commitment to put a stop to existing proposals for restructuring of councils in Norfolk, Devon and Suffolk. It would prevent implementation of any of the existing proposals for a single-tier local government structure, which in practice relate to these three counties under the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007.
