A SECOND public consultation has opened over plans to redraw parliamentary constituency boundaries as part of electoral reforms.

It follows a decision to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650.

The biggest local reform would see Meon Valley scrapped and its voters moved to either Fareham, Winchester or the East Hampshire constituencies. More minor plans have been unveiled to tweak the Portsmouth North and South constituencies.
