Chris Bryant MP, Labour’s Shadow Political and Constitutional Reform Minister, commenting on the proposals from the Boundary Commission, said:

"Many of the initial proposals for new constituencies reflect the flawed legislation which brought them into being.

The task now is to inject some common sense back into many of these recommendations."
