Crosby MP Bill Esterson takes his campaign to reunite Crosby to

Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson at the Boundary Commission public hearing.


Crosby Labour MP Bill Esterson has called on the Boundary Commission to take the opportunity to re-unite Crosby when he appeared at the public hearing in Liverpool.

The Labour Party Submission to the Boundary Commission calls for the whole of Crosby to be in one constituency.

The Commission’s initial proposals would split Crosby leaving the village centre split between Bootle and Maghull.

Bill said: “The Boundary Commission has proposed putting Blundellsands in a new Bootle constituency and leaving part of Crosby in a new Maghull constituency.

"This is a direct result of the way the Boundary Commission was set up in a rush by the Conservatives and Lib Dems in government. The Commission has also split Formby.

"The Commission says it will not cross county or borough boundaries unless it has to and it will not split wards. That makes it certain that Formby will be split down the middle but it does mean that we can re-unite Crosby.

"I am therefore launching a campaign to have a new Crosby constituency rather than splitting Crosby down the middle as the Commission has proposed. We might not be able to save Formby but we can save Crosby and that’s what I told the Boundary Commission at the public hearing in Liverpool.

"Crosby was in all in one constituency before the last election. This is an opportunity to put Crosby back together.”
