A CONSTITUENCY would be lost in our region, under new proposals.

The Boundary Commission aims to reduce the total number of seats in Parliament from 650 to 600 by 2015.

Its plans would see Meon Valley removed entirely.

Portsmouth would be split east and west, Portsmouth East containing Eastney and Craneswater, Central Southsea, Drayton and Farlington, Baffins, Copnor, Fratton, Milton and Purbrook, from Havant.

Portsmouth West would include St Thomas, St Jude, Cosham, Charles Dickens, Paulsgrove, Nelson, Hilsea and Portchester East, now in Fareham.

Eastleigh would take three wards from Romsey and Southampton North, four from Winchester and retain seven.

A Hedge End and Hamble constituency would include eight Eastleigh wards, five from Fareham.

Fareham and Horndean would have seven Fareham wards, and 12 from Meon Valley.

Havant would take Waterloo and Rowlands Castle, while East Hampshire would take on Clanfield and Finchdean, all from Meon Valley.

Gosport would be unchanged.
