Schedule 1 – The Local Government Boundary Commission for England

146.This Schedule provides the detailed arrangements for the creation of a new Local Government Boundary Commission for England, separate from the Electoral Commission. The Schedule replicates many of the arrangements which apply to the Electoral Commission.

147.It provides for the number of Committee members, which must be at least five and no more than 12, and requires a Chair and Deputy Chair to be appointed. The Schedule provides for appointments to be made by Her Majesty following, in relation to the Chair, an Address by the House of Commons, and for all other members, on the recommendation of the Secretary of State. The Schedule gives the Speaker’s Committee the same role in the control and oversight of the funding of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England as it has for the Electoral Commission.
