The Hon Mr Justice Sales
Deputy Chairman
Boundary Commission for England

I am writing in support of the proposals put forward by Nick Brown to reconfigure the five parliamentary seats contained within Newcastle and North Tyneside.  I was not able to attend the Boundary Commission hearings held in Newcastle on 14th and 15th but I understand proposals were made by the Liberal Democrats to put their target wards in the same constituency. I am sure I need not highlight to you how politically driven that is.


Nick Brown’s proposals do not deliver any party advantage, but they do advantage the people of Newcastle Central:







Nick Brown’s proposals reflect and maintain existing community links to a greater extent than the initial Boundary Commission proposals without impacting constituencies outside the Newcastle/North Tyneside area.  I therefore hope you will give them your most serious consideration.


All the best

Chi Onwurah
Labour MP for Newcastle upon Tyne Central
