To ask the Scottish Government whether it will ensure that the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland provides reasons for what are considered radical changes, such as those proposed for Argyll and Bute in its Fifth Review, other than parity between numbers of voters in wards and roughly equal ratios of councillors to voters.


Answered by Marco Biagi (12/11/2015):

The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is independent of the Scottish Government. The commission has carried out a series of consultations on its proposals for changes to local government electoral arrangements in the 32 Scottish council areas, including Argyll and Bute. The last of those consultations, a public consultation on proposals for ward boundaries, closed on 22 October 2015. The commission will now consider the responses to those consultations and submit its proposals to ministers.
