Boundary changes

Current proposals by the Boundary Commission for England would retain these 7 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards, and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. These changes will take effect at the United Kingdom general election, 2010.
