West Lancashire Parliamentary constituency's boundaries are to remain unchanged in the latest and final recommendations of the Boundary Commission's review.
Every constituency in the UK has been under review as part of the Conservative-led Government's plans to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600 at the next general election, expected to be in 2015.
In response to the recommendation that the West Lancashire Parliamentary constituency remains unchanged, MP Rosie Cooper said:
"I'm glad that we now have the final proposals from the Boundary Commission. Throughout this process there has been speculation about potential reconfigurations.
“I've always said the existing West Lancashire constituency is well-established and is unique in bordering seats in the three neighbouring areas of Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
"I was always clear that whatever West Lancashire was to look like at the next general election, I would just carry on with my job of fighting hard on the issues that really matter to West Lancashire individuals, to families and to our communities, not on what the boundaries are. Important issues such as tackling flooding, a new town centre and railway station for Skelmersdale, and protecting local health services amongst many others.
