Have your say on boundary change

08 December, 2017

Jeremy Corbyn

IT’S the last chance to comment on possible boundary changes for parliament constituencies with the official consultation survey ending on Monday. Under proposed Boundary Commission plans, Jeremy Corbyn’s seat of Islington North may be abolished. A new seat, Islington, could be created which covers the current constituency of Islington South and Finsbury.

One commenter said: “Islington North should remain a single constituency and not be rolled into a mega constituency which extends way out to Hackney and Stoke Newington.
“There is already a high population here and I fail to understand how increasing the size can possibly ensure the constituency population is limited to the 70,000 or so within the parliamentary guidelines.”
