Parliamentary Constituencies Bill — Clause 1 — Reports of the Boundary Commissions — Dates of Reviews — 10 Nov 2020 at 17:30
The majority of MPs voted not to delay a review of Parliamentary constituency boundaries from 2031 to 2033.
MPs were considering the Parliamentary Constituencies Bill.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1.
Lords amendment 1 stated:
- Page 1, line 12, leave out “2031” and insert “2033”
the amendment would have impacted Clause 1(3) of the Bill which provided for an amendment to the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 introducing a replacement section 3(2) to that Act stating:
- Each Boundary Commission must submit a report under subsection 10(1)—
- (a)before 1 July 2023,
- (b)before 1 October 2031, and
- (c)before 1 October of every eighth year after that.”
