Schedule 4 – Local Government Boundary Commission for England: consequential and supplementary amendments

150.This Schedule makes amendments to the Local Government Act 1972, the Environment Act 1995, the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 consequential upon Part 3 of the Act. These changes reflect the establishment of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England as an independent body, the transfer of local government boundary and electoral functions from the Electoral Commission to the new Commission, and the new electoral review procedures set out in Part 3 of this Act. In particular, paragraph 10 makes substantial amendments to arrangements for the review of Greater London Assembly constituency boundaries under the Greater London Authority Act 1999. Under these provisions, where the Secretary of State makes a boundary change order under section 10 of the 2007 Act which affects a London borough, the new Local Government Boundary Commission for England must consider whether or not to conduct a review of the Greater London Assembly constituencies. An order made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to implement any recommendation for changes to Assembly constituencies will be subject to the draft negative resolution procedure (see notes on section 59(9) above).
