"Save our Streatham": - responses published
<p>Last year, as part of its plans to re-organise parliamentary constituencies across England, the Boundary Commission published initial proposals which would mean that the four wards in the centre of Streatham would be split between three different constituencies, and that no single MP would be there to speak for the whole of Streatham.<br /> As with many other areas, a large number of organisations and individuals made representations to the Commission about the proposed break-up of Streatham. The Commission has now published the responses on line:<br /> http://consultation.boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/have-your-say/<br /> I haven't found a way to search for all responses relating to Streatham; if anyone else has, please let people know.<br /> The deadline for making comments on these responses is mid-day on Tuesday 3 April. After that, the Commission will produce revised proposals.<br /> There is more background to the boundary review and the legal constraints within which it is working here:<br /> <a href="http://consultation.boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/news/joining-the-debate/">http://consultation.boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/news/joining-the-debate/</a> and there are earlier discussion topics on the Streatham Action site</p> <p><br /> <strong>Update:</strong> I've just had this response from the Boundary Commission:</p> <p><em>Enabling a search by constituency would have required the “tagging” of every representation with the name of the constituency or constituencies that it referred to. In light of the number of representations received [over 22,000 unique representations], it would not have been possible to complete such an exercise within the tight timescale for the review as set down by Parliament. In order to make it easier for people to locate particular representations, we have made it possible for people to search the database by a number of filters, including the region of England, the name of the person writing the representation and the type of respondent such as Member of Parliament, a Local Authority or a member of the public.</em></p> <p>So, to search for Streatham, we need to trawl through all responses for the London region. A simple text search box would have been useful.<br /> </p>
