The most exciting part of the Parliamentary Boundary review proposals

This is, colleagues in Scotland in particular note, an England only policy announcement:

We consider that the use of commas in existing constituency names is currently inconsistent and sometimes does not aid clarity. We have therefore taken a policy decision that commas will no longer be included in the names of constituencies.

  • Mind = blown.

  • So, let me get this straight: the Scots can still have constituencies with commas while the English can’t? I see a new debate coming on, a debate to make the West Lothian Question pale into insignificance by comparison…

    Has the deadline for Emergency Motions passed?

  • Malcolm Todd 13th Sep '11 - 2:08pm

    thechristophe wins the prize for comment even geekier than the announcement … šŸ˜‰

  • Malcolm, I think he is not using his apostrophe correctly. My apology for furher pedantry. Are any of these issues only applicable in England also?

  • Sorry. For older readers, “Not also but only”.

  • Richard Hill 13th Sep '11 - 9:28pm

    At last something worth talking about

  • Will the Boundary Commission be consulting widely on their new draft proposals on commas? šŸ™‚

    Is there any chance of a new series of Yes Minister – this is perfect!

  • Kevin Larkin 16th Sep '11 - 1:25pm

    They haven’t been entirely consistent. Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner retains its comma.
