Devonwall Plans Resurrected
10:45am 8th January 2013
Plans have been resurrected to force Launceston, Bude and Camelford to share an MP with Devon.
The Prime Minister has said changing constituencies would be fairer, and that there will be a vote.
That is despite big protests and his Deputy Nick Clegg threatening to vote against it.
Patricia Moore runs a business in Stratton. She said: "If the government get their own way, will we be given an MP fromn outside of Cornwall? Will we get an MP who lives in Somerset or the far end of Devon? Which again, is totally different, it's totally different issues.
"The smaller areas will get sucked in and forgotten, completely forgotten. The bigger areas, where there's more people to do the shouting, will get the lion's share of what goes on. I seriously don't think that one MP can cope with that kind of area."
