Paragraph 4 - Directions and guidance to the Commission

71.Paragraph 4 requires that a direction under section 11 or section 137 must specify the date by which the Boundary Commission must submit its final report, with recommendations, to the Welsh Ministers and that a direction may include specific matters to which the Boundary Commission must have regard when conducting an initial review. The Welsh Ministers are also enabled to issue general directions to the Boundary Commission on carrying out initial reviews; this might be necessary if the Boundary Commission is undertaking several initial reviews at the same time, in which case the general direction might specify the order in which the Boundary Commission must carry out the individual reviews.
