Maskey welcomes High Court decision on Boundary Commission proposals
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has welcomed a decision from the High Court which found that the Boundary Commission acted unfairly when it failed to consider responses to a consultation on proposed constituency changes.
The West Belfast MP said:
"I welcome today's verdict from the High Court which found there had been legal flaws in the Boundary Commission’s recommendations for changes to constituencies in the north.
"The judgement today found that responses to the consultation on the proposals were not fully considered.
"This case was brought by a Belfast man who was concerned about the proposed changes.
"All responses to consultations should be fully and equally considered.
"Everyone has the right to a fair representation and that requires a fair process."
