MP launches campaign to save the name of The Wrekin constituency

Written on June 15, 2021

Under proposals published by the Boundary Commission for England last week, The Wrekin constituency would remain largely in its current form except for the addition of the wards of Hodnet and Cheswardine.

However, the Boundary Commission for England has proposed that the new, larger constituency should be called Newport and Wellington.

Wrekin MP Mark Pritchard has written to all local town and parish councils, and to the leaders of Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council, to ask them to consider supporting his campaign to keep the name the same.

Members of the public can submit their views on the proposed changes to the Boundary Commission for England through a consultation portal at bcereviews.org.uk.

The deadline for submissions is August 2.
