.The Wessex Regionalists have submitted the following response to the Boundaries Commision's consultation on the proposed changes to parliamentary constituency boundaries:
We support the campaign by Cornish organisations against the proposed "Devonwall constituency", which violates the territorial integrity of both Wessex and Cornwall. We also object to your description of it as a "cross-county" constituency, rather than one which crosses a national boundary.
On the subject of cross-county constituencies, we note with regret the creation of a Warminster and Shaftesbury constituency, half of which would be in Wiltshire with the other half in Dorset. Whilst not quite as severe as the erosion of the Tamar boundary, we do believe that the counties of Wessex are venerable institutions whose boundaries should be respected.
Our President, Colin Bex, has also submitted his own personal response, which you can read here.
