In accordance with its statutory duties under Sections 3(1) and 3(2) of the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended), the Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland has, today (Wednesday 5 September 2018), submitted its Final Recommendations of 2018 Review of Parliamentary Constituencies to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

In line with parliamentary protocol the Commission will not be publishing the Final Recommendations Report until it has been laid in Parliament.  The timing for laying of the Report is a matter for the Government and is outside the control of the Boundary Commission.
