Former MP slams ward boundary proposals
THE FORMER MP for Argyll and Bute has told the boundaries commissioner to ‘reverse its decision’ and needs to ‘tear up its plans’ for changes to council wards.
Alan Reid, who is now the Liberal Democrat candidate for Argyll and Bute, slammed the ward boundary proposals for Argyll and Bute Council as ‘the most ridiculous he has ever seen’ in a submission to the Boundary Commission.
Mr Reid said: ‘ These ward boundary proposals are the most ridiculous I have ever seen. The Boundary Commission must tear them up and start again from scratch.
In his submission to the Boundary Commission he said: ‘I objected last year to the cut in councillors from 36 to 33.
‘The only solution is to reverse last year’s bad decision to reduce ward numbers and start again with 36 councillors.’
