Staffordshire MPs' fate debated in boundary change plan

Voters in Staffordshire are being consulted about plans to reduce the number of MPs representing them.

The Boundary Commission wants to redraw England's electoral wards to make them more evenly sized.

That could mean bigger wards, 50 fewer seats in the House of Commons and 11 MPs in Staffordshire instead of 12.

Newcastle-Under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent North could lose their MPs and parts of their old constituencies would create a new seat called Kidsgrove and Tunstall.

Public meetings are being held to discuss the plans at Staffordshire County Council's offices in Martin Street, Stafford, on Monday and Tuesday.

They are part of 12-week-long public consultations.
