I think that's potentially very misleading so a couple more OT points

a. the reorganisation in Scotland was not really a trial: it was
recommended by Scots, for Scotland, without regard to E&W, against the
b/g of widespread desire for reform. See eg
http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Government/local-government/localg/history

b. while E&W did not have the same loss of "shires"[1], the
reorganisation in 1974 that (among other things) created metropolitan
counties and a 2-tier system was similar in approach.

[1] though some in Yorkshire seemed to think the 4 horsemen were riding
out
