HC Deb 08 July 1982 vol 27 c161W
Q10. Mr. Freud

asked the Prime Minister in respect of how many constituencies the Boundary Commission has made final recommendations; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

The final recommendations of the Boundary Commission for England will not be known until it submits the report of its current general review to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department. I can, however, tell the House that it has so far published provisional recommendations for 523 parliamentary constituencies.

The Scottish and Welsh Commissions hope to complete their reviews by the end of 1982 and to submit their reports as soon as practicable thereafter. The Northern Ireland Commission is likely to submit its report during the summer.
