To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidelines have been given to the Commission reviewing local government about the optimum councillor/elector ratio.

None. The ratio of councillors to electors must be as nearly as possible the same in every electoral division or ward in an authority. Beyond that, it is a matter for the commission's judgment in each review area.
