HC Deb 18 January 1968 vol 756 cc656-7W
Mr. Oswald

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the proposed new constituency boundaries for the City of Edinburgh, as recommended by the Boundary Commission for Scotland in July, 1967 will be finalised.

Mr. Ross:

The Boundary Commission for Scotland has until August, 1969 to submit a report on the general review of Parliamentary constituencies on which it is at present engaged. Although the Commission has published provisional recommendations for constituencies in Edinburgh, these recommendations are subject to the procedure prescribed in the House of Commons (Redistribution of Seats) Acts, 1949 and 1958, and may be revised at any time before the Commission's report is made.
