Constitutional reform

Asked what the Prime Minister thought about the Shadow Justice Secretary’s proposal to split the issues of voting reform and constituency boundaries into two separate bills, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that the bills had been published in the House and it was now up to members to debate.

Asked if the Prime Minister was optimistic about the vote going his way, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had set out his position clearly on the AV vote, which he talked about this morning during a radio interview. There was obviously a difference of opinion between the two sides of the coalition, but they had set out a compromised position in the coalition agreement.

Asked what the logic was behind voting on the two issues of AV and constituency boundaries together, the PMS said it was about dealing with constitutional reform as a whole.
