Vote on assembly.

NORTH West people will get the chance to vote on setting up a regional assembly within two years.

Deputy premier John Prescott signalled that a bill to allow referendums on English regional devolution will be in November's Queen's Speech, outlining the 2003 legislation programme.

Ministers will speed the bill through both Houses of Parliament so that voting can take place the following year.

Mr Prescott said: ``The task now is to bring regional governance to England, something I have fought for all my political life.''
