The Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland
Parliament has passed an amendment to the Electoral Registration and Administration Bill. This amendment postpones the date by which the Commission is required to report its recommendations for revised Parliamentary constituencies until September 2018. It also requires us to base our next review on the electoral register at 1 December 2015.
As a result, the Commission has ceased working on the Sixth Review of Parliamentary constituencies and will no longer be reporting to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in the autumn of 2013.
The Commission would like to thank all those who took the time to contribute to the review and whose submissions contributed so helpfully to our task.
