HC Deb 08 September 2003 vol 410 cc17-8W
Mr. Peter Duncan

To ask the Prime Minister whether it is his policy that the fifth periodic review of the Boundary Commission for Scotland should be effected before the next general election. [128014]

The Prime Minister

Implementing the Boundary Commission for Scotland's recommendations on Scottish parliamentary constituencies before the next general election will depend on when the Commission reports and on the date of that election. The Government is required, as soon as may be after the Commission has submitted its report, to lay this before Parliament, together with a draft Order in Council giving effect, with or without modifications, to the report's recommendations.
