§ Mr. Spence
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ascertain and publish the area in acres of the parliamentary constituency of Ryedale; and how many constituencies in England are of greater area and by how much.
§ Mr. Mellor
The area of each constituency is given in table A of the "Parliamentary Constituency Monitors (Boundaries 1983) for Great Britain", (CEN 81 PCM(83)), published by the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys in May 1983. The publication is available in the Library of the House.
