Motion text

That this House rejects the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's final recommendations for warding arrangements for the far eastern part of the borough of Slough, which includes a new ward configuration which had been discounted in earlier drafts and had not been included in any submissions from individuals and political groups; believes that these recommendations for warding arrangements run counter to the stated aims of the boundary review, of preferring three member wards with minimum variance from the average ward size; notes thatin these proposals Colnbrook ward has a -12 per cent variance and a one member ward has been created in Foxborough which includes the most deprived community in the town; and calls on the Local Government Boundary Commission to reopen consultation on this aspect of its proposals.

There are no withdrawn signatures for this motion.
