§ 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.
