asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Final Report of the Boundary Commissions for England, Scotland and Wales will be available.

I understand that the reports of the Boundary Commissions for England and Wales are likely to be submitted to me during the next week or two. I am not yet able to say, however, how soon it will be practicable to publish them, together with the draft Orders in Council giving effect to their recommendations which, in accordance with section 2 (5) of the House of Commons (Redistribution of Seats) Act. 1949, must accompany them. My right hon. Friend expects to lay the report of the Boundary Commission for Scotland before Parliament by the middle of November.
