Boundary Commission for England submits final report on new constituency boundaries to Government
The Boundary Commission for England has today submitted its report containing final recommendations for new constituency boundaries to the Government. In doing so, the Commission has fulfilled its statutory responsibility, and submission of the report ends the Commission’s involvement in the 2018 Boundary Review.
It is now up to the Government to lay the report before Parliament. The Boundary Commission cannot publish the report, or announce its recommendations, until the Government has laid the report before Parliament.
Secretary to the Commission, Sam Hartley, said, ‘We’re pleased to present our recommendations to Government today. We think the new map of constituencies best reflects the rules set for us by Parliament and we’re delighted that our recommendations are based heavily on what members of the public have told us about their local areas. It is now up to the Government to present our report to Parliament, and we look forward to being able to publish our recommendations once that has happened.’
