  11. Stephen Parnaby: "A combined authority won't work"

    David Harrison

    BBC Radio Humberside

    The leader of the East Riding Council doesn't believe an East Yorkshire and Hull combined authority would work. 

    Stephen Parnaby (pictured) says the two councils work closely in a number of areas and will continue to do so. 

    But he doesn't think combining the authorities would be beneficial for residents:

    Councillor Stephen Parnaby
    Quote Message: If you're going to change something like that you've got to take the public in all those areas with you, if you're talking about one authority. If you talk to people in Pocklington and Stamford Bridge they're probably more associated with York. If you talk to people in Goole they're probably more associated with Doncaster or Scunthorpe... You could set the whole ball rolling for a whole-scale reorganisation of local government." from Stephen Parnaby East Riding of Yorkshire Council Leader
