Devonwall Plans Could Be Off
2:41pm 7th August 2012
Plans to force Cornwall to share an MP with Devon sound like they are off.
So-called 'Devonwall' would have meant Launceston, Camelford and Bude being lumped in with Torrington and Bideford.
But now the Lib Dems say they will kill off boundary changes.
It is after Nick Clegg asked his MP's to vote against them.
Adam Killeya speaks for the 'Keep Cornwall Whole' campaign:
"The crux of our campaign has always been that, yes you have to base representation on numbers of people partly, but you also have to base it on community. The needs of the community in Cornwall are very different to the needs of the community in Devon and they deserve separate representation"
"There is still a law which will mean that the next time they do boundary changes they will have to cross the border. So from our point of view it is great that there won't be changes before the next election. The question will be what the next government then does about the rules"
"Whether it comes back to having another go at a boundary review based on these rules or somebody considering changing the rules, either way Keep Cornwall Whole will fight to say that Cornwall shouldn't have its border crossed as far as MPs go"
