Boundary Review Committee - Consultation Extended 27 January 2007

The Boundary Review Committee appointed under the Representation of the People Act 1995, Section 11, pursuant to resolutions of Tynwald to review the number and boundaries of the constituencies for elections to the House of Keys submitted an interim report to Tynwald in January 2006. That interim report proposed a number of short term measures, as well as indicating that a more thorough review would be commenced thereafter.

In December 2006 the Committee invited comments from the public on a number of issues but unfortunately the time given to respond was not sufficient. The consultation period has therefore been extended.

The Boundary Review Committee invites views from members of the public, in particular on the following:

  1. Existing constituency boundaries & whether they actually represent community or geographical divisions;
  2. Existing constituency boundaries & whether they actually represent community or geographical divisions;
  3. Optimum size of constituencies;
  4. Whether voter numbers should be the sole guide to constituency size;
  5. Views on the desirability of single or multi member constituencies;
  6. Should all constituencies have the same number of Members and if so what is the preferred number;
  7. Any other relevant matters.

Comments should be made in writing by Monday 26th February 2007, to Mrs Caroline Mallon, Chief Secretary’s Office, Government Office, Bucks Road, DOUGLAS, IM1 3PN or via e-mail to caroline.mallon@cso.gov.im (fax no 685710).
