§ Sir J. RANDLES
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the constituencies suggested in the. Report of the Boundary Commissioners were altered in many cases and that, in consequence thereof, the maps attached to the Report do not accurately represent the new constituencies; and whether he will, therefore, issue instructions to provide maps showing the actual areas and boundaries of the new constituencies created by the Representation of the People Act, 1918?
I understand that the boundaries of constituencies in Great Britain suggested in the Reports of the Boundary Commissioners were altered during the passage of the Representation of the People Bill through Parliament in the case of only four counties and three Parliamentary boroughs. The contents of each constituency are clearly indicated in the Act, and I hardly think it necessary at the present time to prepare and issue fresh maps.
