MICHAEL Gove has been told to get a move on after failing to deliver on a promise to publish the results of a long-awaited Union review.

The Cabinet Office minister has promised to make the results of the Dunlop Review public in 2020, but the papers are yet to see the light of day.

MPs on four Westminster committees have now united to demand action from Gove.

The Dunlop Review, commissioned in July 2019 by then-prime minister Theresa May, was charged with examining devolution and recommending how the Union could be strengthened.

Former Scotland Office minister Lord Dunlop – who also advised David Cameron on issues of devolution – was put in charge of the work.

It is thought to have been completed early last year, and has been kept under wraps by Downing Street ever since.

Reports suggest it includes more than 40 recommendations for a major shake-up of Whitehall, including moving officials outside London to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Now the chairs of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, and the Scottish Affairs, Welsh Affairs and Northern Ireland Affairs committees, have all joined together to call for its publication.

The committees are due to question Gove on the issue on January 28, and they added that for this to “go ahead as planned” they needed both the review and the Government’s response to it to be available by Thursday January 14.

They told Gove: “Our Committees have been awaiting the publication of Lord Dunlop’s review and the Government’s response to it for some time.

“It was therefore disappointing to learn that, contrary to earlier commitments, these would not be published before the end of 2020.”

The committee chairs told Gove if the review and response could not be published by their deadline, ministers should “set out a clear alternative timeframe for publication so that we can arrange our scrutiny accordingly”.

In November, Labour peer George Foulkes asked the Tory government when the report would be published, and was told it would be "by the end of this year".
