Parliamentary boundary consultation

The Boundary Commission has been tasked by the Government with reducing the number of MPs.  This means losing one MP from the East of England – and re-drawing all the areas the new MPs will serve to equalise the number of voters.  The Commission says:

We published our initial proposals on 13 September 2016, and consulted on them for 12 weeks.

We then published all the representations we received during those 12 weeks on 28 February 2017, and we are asking for people’s views on what others have said until 27 March 2017.

The Commission’s current proposals include moving Littleport out of North East Cambridgeshire into a different parliamentary constituency that is mostly Norfolk, including Thetford, Downham Market and Swaffham.
