Boundary Review Committee considering changes to proposals

Tuesday, 26 March 2013

THE Boundary Review Committee wishes to inform the public that, following the public consultation that took place between 9 January and 20 February 2013 on the proposals to draw up constituency boundaries for the House of Keys into twelve constituencies of two Members each, it is now giving consideration to a number of changes.

The most significant of these are:

Responses should be received by 5pm on Tuesday 9 April 2013. The consultation on the revised constituencies concluded on 20 February and the Boundary Review Committee is seeking views only the proposals specified above. Responses in respect of other parts of the review are not required.
