PROPOSALS FOR CONSTITUENCY BOUNDARIES IN THE COUNTIES OF STAFFORDSHIRE AND STOKE-ON-TRENT

PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO THE PARLIAMENTARY BOUNDARY COMMISSION'S PROPOSALS FOR CONSTITUENCY BOUNDARIES IN THE COUNTIES OF STAFFORDSHIRE AND STOKE-ON-TRENT

The commission published proposals on 14 February 2002, recommending

that the combined counties of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent should

continue to be allocated 12 seats.

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 9 May 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 the 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 held by the assistant commissioner, Alaric

Dalziel. It will open on:

TUESDAY 25 JUNE 2002 at 10.00am in the COUNCIL CHAMBER, CIVIC CENTRE,

STOKE-ON-TRENT.

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
