BOUNDARY COMMISSION INQUIRY: YORKS/KINGSTON/LINCOLNSHIRE, GLOUCESTERSHIRE AND HEREFORDSHIRE

  • Comment
EAST RIDING OF YORKSHIRE...
EAST RIDING OF YORKSHIRE

KINGSTON UPON HULL

NORTH EAST LINCOLNSHIRE

NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE

The commission published proposals on 1 August 2002 for changes to

constituencies in the four unitary authorities of East Riding of

Yorkshire Council, Kingston upon Hull City Council, North East

Lincolnshire Council, and North Lincolnshire Council.

Objections made about these proposals have required the holding of a

local inquiry under the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986.

Official notice of the inquiry will be published in local newspapers

on 19 December 2002.

The inquiry will be held in public and any interested person, whether

a supporter of or objector to the commission's proposals may attend

and be heard. The commission would urge all interested parties to

attend and make their views known. It should not be assumed that the

inquiry will only discuss those matters raised in representations

submitted during the representation period allowed nor that the

commission's provisional recommendations will remain unchanged. On

many occasions, following consideration of the evidence submitted at

an inquiry and the assistant commissioner's report, the commission

have revised their recommendations. While the commission will always

invite written representations in respect of any revised

recommendations they might publish, all interested parties should be

aware that they may not be able to state their case at a further

inquiry, as a further inquiry will only rarely be held.

The inquiry will be conducted by the assistant commissioner, James

Allen QC. It will open on:-

Tuesday 18 February 2003 at 10.30am in the Council Chamber, County

Hall, Beverley.

The provisional recommendations, copies of the representations made

to the commission (together with a summary), and a statement by the

commission, which will be introduced formally at the inquiry, are

open for public inspection at:-
