As you will be aware the Boundaries Bill is now in the House of Lords:
it went through its second reading two weeks ago and is due to begin the
crucial committee stage today.
To keep up the pressure we want as many of you as possible, even those
who have already written, to contact five key individuals:
Rt. Hon. David Cameron MP, Prime Minister, 10, Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AA
Rt. Hon. Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA
Lord Strathclyde, Leader of the House of Lords, House of Lords, London, SW1A 0AA
Lord McNally, Deputy Leader of the House of Lords, House of Lords, London, SW1A 0AA
Lord Wallace, Attorney General for Scotland, House of Lords, London, SW1A 0AA
Please write to at least one of the five – preferably all five if you can! It’s best if you can use your own words, but some points you might wish to include are:
i) Cornwall has a unique history, culture and distinct economics, politics and sociological Issues
ii) Equalising numbers is important, but proper representation for communities is even more important.
iii) The bill could easily be amended to exempt Cornwall from having its boundary crossed
iv) Cornwall’s distinctiveness is currently officially recognised in a number of ways – including EU Convergence Funding,
County and Diocesan boundaries, the new LEP, the Cornish language etc.

Please write as soon as you can, and encourage others to do likewise – the campaign is moving into its final critical stage.
