Devonwall dead?

Devonwall dead?

Following a sustained campaign involving political parties, Cornwall Council, Town and Parish Councils, campaign groups and many others, it is possible that the unlawful 'Devonwall' cross border constituency idea has been finally dropped by a Westminster government in crisis.

During that campaign, KMTU wrote to every Council in Cornwall and our members participated in the Polson Bridge demonstration closing off that road into Cornwall in protest at a possible fudging of Cornwall's time honoured boundary. Letters were also sent to members of the House of Lords, MPs and many other individuals including Church leaders.

It looks possible that the Conservatives might be about to back down!

Theresa May 'to ditch plans to cut number of MPs'

Proposals to trim seats in Commons to 600 will be dropped as Conservatives fear they will not get vote through parliament, Times reports

Link to Guardian newspaper report:

That said, it seems ever likely that the police service will soon join the Westcountry Ambulance Service in plans to amalgamate Devon & Cornwall Police with Dorset Police.  This will leave the Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service in the sole control of Cornwall Council.
