Clegg insists boundary reform is dead

LIB Dem leader Nick Clegg yesterday insisted that his party will vote against changes to MPs’ constituencies – a decision that will make it harder for the Conservatives to win an outright majority at the next election. Proposed changes to boundaries were published yesterday and a vote is scheduled for October 2013, but any change is likely to need Lib Dem support. The reforms could give the Conservatives up to 20 extra seats at the next election.
