This wouldn't work in the case of civil parishes as components of
districts and UA's though. You cannot define a district as the union of
the parishes. There are unparished areas, detached parts and "lands
common" which complicate the model. However I believe every point in the
UK is within some district/UA, and every district is within a county,
giving 100% coverage at that level.
