Catherine West Hornsey and Wood Green MP Submission

Catherine West Hornsey and Wood Green MP Submission

David Lammy Tottenham MP Submission

David Lammy did not submit a written comment his comments are subscribed from the first day of the Boundary Commission review proceedings held at Aldersgate room, central hall Westminster on the 17th of October 2016: I add other speakers Mr lammy comments are referring to have context.

BARONESS HAMWEE: (Liberal Democrat Party) …”Hornsey Vale, transferring the two Wood Green wards, that is Woodside and Noel Park, from Hornsey and Wood Green to Tottenham, if we keep them together that avoids splitting Wood Green and ensures there is still a constituency wholly within Haringey. Transferring Stroud Green and Haringey wards to Hornsey and Wood Green, Haringey Ward has few transport or community links to Tottenham which is centred further east on the A10.”

MR DAVID LAMMY: (MP for Tottenham) “I am not sure I heard correctly but did I hear Haringey ward and Stroud Green ward described as not being part of Tottenham historically when in fact they have been part of Tottenham since 1691?

MR GUYS: No. The transport links were not strong between Haringey ward and Tottenham, Tottenham being based some way to the east on the A10 and that the Wood Green wards have stronger links to Tottenham than those two wards”

MR PRATT: (on behalf of the Conservative Party and the Greater London Region Conservatives.)… “Then in order to meet the electoral criteria, the five remaining Enfield wards, Edmonton Green, Haselbury, Jubilee, Lower Edmonton and Upper Edmonton, should be placed with the four Tottenham wards, Bruce Grove, Northumberland Park, Tottenham Hale and White Hart Lane which are in Haringey. We note that a number of respondents commented on local ties between Edmonton and Tottenham”

MR DAVID LAMMY: I am sorry, I was not clear. You explained your Edmonton and Tottenham Hale seat and the four wards in the north of Tottenham that would be part of that seat. Can you explain where the rest of Tottenham goes in your configuration? The remaining four wards in Tottenham would have to go somewhere.

MR PRATT: Of course, Mr Lammy. I will pass one of these to you so that you are aware. As I say, we have Finchley and Muswell Hill which has five wards from Haringey; Hornsey and Wood Green which includes Bounds Green, Haringey, Hornsey, Noel Park, Seven Sisters, St. Ann’s, Stroud Green, Tottenham Green, West Green and Woodside, and I think I explained, as you say, the other ones that went into the Edmonton and Tottenham Hale constituency which was, as the revised proposals last time, Bruce Grove, Northumberland Park, Tottenham Hale and White Hart Lane.
