Devonwall 'Threat' Could Return
7:01am 2nd July 2014
Devonwall could be back.
It is the controversial plan to make part of Cornwall share an MP with Devon.
It could mean Bude being lumped together with Bideford.
Last time this was suggested there were demonstrations by the Tamar to keep Cornwall whole.
Then the bid failed in a furious bust up between the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives.
Now a report warns it could happen in 2016 unless action is taken now.
Former North Cornwall MP, Lord Tyler said: “The risk is that without a change in the law after 2015, the Boundary Commissions could spend nearly £7m on another review with totally unsatisfactory results.
"For Cornwall, the outcome would be particularly bad, since the present rules make a cross-border Devon/Cornwall constituency more or less inevitable.
"This report shows the way – on a totally non-partisan basis – to make the system fairer without breaching strong natural borders like that between Cornwall and England.”7:01am 2nd July 2014
