The Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland will begin the Secondary Consultation stage of the 2018 Review of Parliamentary constituencies on Tuesday 5 September 2017.  The consultation will last for four weeks.

Announcing the publication date, Eamonn McConville, Secretary to the Boundary Commission, said:

‘The Secondary Consultation stage will be an opportunity for the public to see and comment on the responses received by the Commission on its Provisional Proposals for the new 17 Parliamentary constituencies in Northern Ireland.  The Commission is consulting later than anticipated this year but remains confident that we will meet our statutory deadline of reporting to Parliament with final recommendations in September 2018.’

Responses to the Provisional Proposals will be made available for scrutiny and comment on the Boundary Commission’s consultation portal www.bcni2018.uk  from 5 September 2017 until 2 October 2017.
