CAMPAIGN FOR THE ENGLISH REGIONS (Amendment 1)
leave out from beginning to end of line 6 and add 'recognises that some regions do not coincide with the boundaries of central government defined regions which were designed for administrative convenience rather than to reflect regional identity; and welcomes efforts to enable regions to have devolved government appropriate to their needs, following the precedent of devolving power to places with regional identity and cultural and historic integrity, as was the case in Scotland and Wales.'.
