§ Q40. Mr. Wigley
asked the Prime Minister whether Her Majesty's Government intend to propose that parliamentary boundary changes for England and Scotland should be implemented and come into effect at the same time as those for Wales.
§ The Prime Minister
The Orders in Council giving effect to the final recommendations of the Boundary Commissions for England, Scotland and Wales, with or without modifications, will come into operation 14 days after they are made. The new boundaries will not take effect until a general election is held.
