Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many representations he has received to date in support of the local Government reform proposals set out for Dwyfor; and if he will indicate the number of representations received that were in favour of granting independent unitary authority status for(a) Meirionnydd and (b) Montgomery.

Mr. David Hunt

Since publishing my White Paper on 1 March 1993, I have received one written representation in support of a Caernarfonshire and Meirionnyddshire unitary authority. In addition, I have received 10 representations in favour of a Meirionnydd unitary authority and 181 representations in favour of a Montgomeryshire unitary authority. I have also received 4,135 signed postcards in favour of unitary authority status for Montgomeryshire.
