Personally I think most or all eligibility rules should be scrapped and you should be able to play for who you want to. That might be the only way to resolve the forty year old dispute which appears to have started with Lancashire objecting to a new county taking "their" players away.
But now it's been asked, perhaps the ECF could clarify the eligibility conditions for playing for Lancashire and presumably therefore why the Horton brothers satisfied them. The explicit rules about eligibility are muddy on what constitutes a county.
do you think the ECF will say when certain players was ok to play for Lancashire?
My guess and it's only a guess is that we won't hear anything unless there is an issue and if there were any borderline cases Lancashire would have checked in advance. If any of the players were/are deemed to be ineligible the result would have been amended by now.
