PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO THE PARLIAMENTARY BOUNDARY COMMISSION'S PROPOSALS FOR CONSTITUENCY BOUNDARIES IN WILTSHIRE

  • Comment
An inquiry is to be held on behalf of the Parliamentary Boundary ...
An inquiry is to be held on behalf of the Parliamentary Boundary

Commission for England into their provisional recommendations for

constituency boundaries in the county of Wiltshire. The commission

published their proposals on 3 May 2001, recommending that the county

of Wiltshire be allocated an extra, fifth, seat.

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 15 November 2001.

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, Mr Simon R

Pickles. It will open on:-

TUESDAY 22 JANUARY 2002 at 10.30am in the BANQUETING HALL, GUILDHALL,

SALISBURY.

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
