Halton facing huge parliamentary boundary changes

The Boundary Commission for England has announced the plans, which it said are aimed at making Parliament fairer by giving each MP roughly a similar number of voters.

Under the proposals, which could take effect from 2023, the electoral constituency of Halton – which is currently held by Labour’s Derek Twigg – would disappear altogether and be replaced by a new constituency of Widnes and Halewood.
