The Council gave consideration to a report providing information on the Boundary Commission for Scotland consultation on its proposals relating to the 2023 Review of UK Parliamentary Constituencies. The proposals aligned with the decision of the Council on 25 November 2021 in regard to the geographic extent of the boundary; and that they take into account the comment from the Council in regard to the name of the boundary.
The Council –
1. noted the publication of the Boundary Commissions revised proposals for UK Parliamentary constituencies which have maintained the proposal for the Argyll and Bute constituency area being spread north to incorporate part of ward 21 (Fort William and Ardnamurchan); and
2. welcomed the change of name of the proposed constituency to Argyll, Bute and South Lochaber.
