No To North West Regional AssemblyThe Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Atkins, MEP for the North West, helped launch the Conservative European Policy Document on UK Regional Assemblies today.
"Labour's plan is to abolish Britain's historic counties and to merge local government into the European Federalist Committee of the Regions. It must be stopped," declared Sir Robert.
"As the public learn more about this flawed and unnecessary Regional Assembly, the more they dislike it. That is why Conservatives oppose it - root and branch".
