The Parliamentary Boundary Review is a dead duck

Liberal Democrat chief whip Alistair Carmichael MP has called on the government to stop wasting money on a dead-duck boundary review and scrap it.

Alistair Carmichael said:

“The DUP will not wear this review. Nor will many Tory backbenchers. The government should stop wasting public funds and bow to the inevitable.

“But if by some miracle it does go through, the Liberal Democrats will fight and win seats on these boundaries, in considerably stronger numbers than we managed last time.

“We will be making representations in the final eight week consultation for retaining strong community ties just as we have done at every stage of the review.”
