Boundary changes[edit]


The Boundary Commission for England proposed changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards, and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. These changes were implemented for the 2010 general election, and the two Milton Keynes constituencies were slightly renamed.
