Conservatives campaign against Boundary Changes

“KEEPING HOLDERNESS TOGETHER” was the theme of Graham Stuart MP’s Street Surgery in Hedon over the weekend.
Beverley and Holderness MP, Graham Stuart, was out in Hedon’s Market Place on Saturday morning to listen to any concerns that residents wished to raise with him. However, the MP and fellow Conservative activists were also using the opportunity to campaign against proposed boundary changes.
The Boundary Commission for England has recommended that South West Holderness should become part of the Kingston upon Hull East parliamentary constituency at the next General Election (see HU12 article: Parliamentary area to be broken up…).
Graham Stuart says “…this would be a terrible mistake and Hedon, Preston, Paull, Thorngumbald, and the rest of Southwest Holderness must remain part of a constituency which includes other parts of Holderness.”
People can attend public hearings on the Boundary Commission proposals at the City Hall, Hull on Monday 24th October and Tuesday 25th October 2011 to air their views on this issue.
