§ Mr. Terry Walker
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will be confirming the order for new ward boundaries for the Kingswood District Council; and if this will be done in time for the 1976 elections to be fought on the new boundaries.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Because the statutory minimum period for receiving objections to the Boundary Commission's Report has only just expired, we have not yet taken a final decision on the new electoral arrangements for this district. We should expect, if all goes well, to be able to make an order in the New Year in time for the May 1976 elections.
