Petition No to a cross-Tamar “Devonwall” parliamentary constituency
The “Boundary Commission for England” is carrying out a review of the boundaries of parliamentary constituencies. The review follows guidelines in the Parliamentary Voting System & Constituencies Act. This does not recognise Cornwall as a political unit and the BCE has proposed a cross-Tamar seat.
We demand that Westminster politicians amend the legislation to “Keep Cornwall Whole” and ensure parliamentary seats lie entirely within the historic boundaries of Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.
It should be noted that the Government has recognised the Cornish as a national minority through the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, and it is evident that the creation of a “Devonwall” seat would be in conflict with the articles of the Framework Convention.
