Mr. J. Hill
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the Boundary Commission for Scotland has yet decided when to commence a general review of constituencies in Scotland.
§ Mr. Ross
The House of Commons (Redistribution of Seats) Act, 1958, requires the Boundary Commission for Scotland to submit its next general report between August, 1964 and August, 1969. Within these limits the Commission has discretion when to start a general review. The Commission, in exercise of its discretion, has given notice this week of its intention to commence forthwith a general review of constituencies in Scotland.
