“I am disappointed to see once again that the boundary commission has proposed a cross-border seat between Devon and Cornwall. I think that the logistics of dealing with three local authorities, two health authorities, and the sheer size of the new constituency would be problematic for any MP.
“I am of the view that Cornwall should be considered a special case and remain whole, and that we shouldn’t be cutting the number of MPs at a time when we are getting more powers back from the European Union to Westminster. The Boundaries Commission should be asked to equalise the constituencies with 650 MPs.
“I won’t be supporting these proposals.”
