§ 26. Michael Fabricant
To ask the hon. Member for Gosport, representing the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission when he expects the Commission to absorb the functions of the bodies responsible for reviewing parliamentary boundaries. 
I have been asked to reply.
I understand that the Government have not yet announced a date for the transfer to the Electoral Commission of the functions of the Parliamentary Boundary Commissions, as provided for in section 16 of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
