The Law Society is consulting members in Wales and adjoining parts of England about the boundaries for Council election constituencies in these areas. The issue is whether Wales should have its own self-contained constituency structure and, if so, what consequential changes should be made to those constituencies which cross the border between Wales and England.
The consultation is being carried out electronically and Electoral Reform Services (ERS), who are administering the procedure for the Law Society, have emailed members in the constituencies listed below to alert them to the consultation and explain how views on the issue can be registered on the ERS website. A background document explaining the issues can be found on the ERS website.
The constituencies concerned are:
No 18 West Country and Gwent
No 19 South Wales
No 20 Mid and West Wales
No 21 The Welsh Marches
No 25 Cheshire and North Wales
If your registered office is in one of these constituencies and you have not received an email from ERS, you may contact ERS and register your views. Please contact email@example.com (telephone 020 8889 9203) to be given a security code to access the ERS website. Views may only be registered through this website. Please do not contact the Law Society to register your views.
The deadline for responses to the consultation has been extended to Friday 15 February 2013.
