(b)a further review under section 15(6) of that Act,

(2)The boundary changes mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) above are boundary changes—

(a)falling within section 14(3)(a) of the 1992 Act (alteration of a local government area) and affecting any London borough;

(b)falling within section 14(3)(d) of that Act (constitution of a new London borough); or

(3)Where this paragraph applies, the Commission shall submit to the Secretary of State the report or reports required under sub-paragraph (4), (5) or (6) below (as read with sub-paragraph (7) below).

(4)If the Commission is of the opinion that, in consequence of the boundary changes mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) above, changes are required to Assembly constituencies in order to comply with the rules set out in paragraph 7 below, the report required is one which recommends to the Secretary of State the changes which in the opinion of the Commission should be made to Assembly constituencies to comply with those rules.

(5)If the Commission is not of the opinion mentioned in sub-paragraph (4) above, the report required is one which states that fact.

(6)If the Commission is of the opinion that a comprehensive review of Assembly constituencies is required in consequence of the boundary changes mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) above, the report required is one which recommends to the Secretary of State that such a review be carried out.

(7)Where a report is required under sub-paragraph (6) above, no report is required under sub-paragraph (4) or (5) above unless the Commission is of the opinion that a report under sub-paragraph (4) above ought to be submitted for the purposes of the next ordinary election, in which case the Commission shall submit such a report in addition to the report required by sub-paragraph (6) above.
