Statement on the Boundaries Review


“I very much welcome today’s announcements from the Boundaries Commission for England, which by and large retain the counter-proposals that Cumbria’s communities worked hard to provide over the course of this consultation. In fact I have been impressed throughout by the BCE’s willingness to listen to communities, and to convert that into workable proposals. I have written to them today to thank them, and to endorse the final outlined proposals. In addition, I encourage all constituents to visit the BCE’s proposals online and to submit their own endorsements as part of this final consultation period, ending on December 11th. And, naturally, my thanks go to everyone in Cumbria who has engaged in this important process so far.”
