Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, when he intends to consult the Local Government Boundary Commission on potential boundary changes consequent upon proposed changes to local government structures in Dorset; and on what date any changes recommended will come into effect.

Answered by Rishi Sunak - Chancellor of the Exchequer

We understand that if Parliament approves the secondary legislation establishing the two new Dorset councils, which the Secretary of State intends to lay before the House shortly, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England intends to undertake electoral reviews for each council to establish new warding arrangements. We do not intend therefore to consult the Commission about potential boundary changes consequent on the proposed changes to local government structures.
