Have your say on boundary changes, urges AM

As new boundary proposals are published, Rhun ap Iorwerth calls for Ynys Môn to be treated as a special case

Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth is urging the residents of Anglesey to have their say on the Boundary Commission’s proposals for new Westminster constituencies.

The proposals, released today, would see Ynys Môn disappear as a parliamentary constituency, and instead join parts of what is now Arfon.

The changes would not affect Assembly constituency boundaries.

Rhun ap Iorwerth commented:

“Other islands have stayed as they are – the Isle of Wight and the Scottish Isles have been excluded from the changes. I believe that Ynys Môn should also be treated as a special case. As an island, Ynys Môn’s boundaries are very clearly defined, and there’s real value in keeping the clear link between the people of the island and those representing them.

“I will be writing to the Boundary Commission as part of the consultation, and I would urge others on Anglesey to voice their opinion too. They can do that either by getting in touch with my office or through the Boundary Commissions’ website http://www.bcw2018.org.uk/
