Devonwall Petition Launched
6:03am 4th November 2011
A last ditch petition is being launched to stop Devonwall.
The government wants Bude, Launceston and Camelford to share an MP with Holsworthy, Bideford and Torrington across the border.
It says it would even out the number of voters in constituencies and be fairer.
But campaigners argue that the Duchy has a long history of independence and this should be respected.
Dick Cole from Mebyon Kernow said, "It's not a done deal. MPs still have to vote. We believe a lot of them are very unhappy about what might happen to their livelihoods and are likely to vote against. So we need to put pressure on to try to keep Cornwall whole and get them to vote down any recommendations.
"Cornwall as an entity needs to thrive. We need to be saying that Cornwall can do more for itself. If the government won't even respect our boundaries what does that say about how they view us, our communities and what we need for our economy and our environment?"
