Please find attached my submission to the first phase of the 2023 Review Consultation for the South East as an Excel spreadsheet.

A few constituencies therein may have the same boundaries as those proposed in the Commission's Initial Report and some seats I estimate to be very similar, whereas many proposals diverge more significantly from the BCE recommendations.

Suggested constituencies are listed in alphabetical order by sub-region. There might also be differences in nomenclature.

All proposed constituencies fall well under the maximum 12,000km² limit. Please ignore the "Berks, Bucks and Hants" tab as it contains 36 unordered seats, which would be one constituency too many. I need to go back to the drawing board when it comes to that review area.

I regret to inform the Commissioners that unfortunately, I'm afraid I've left myself too little time on this occasion to explain my links with the region or thinking behind each proposal and the alternatives that were explored. If needed, I shall elaborate on their merits and my connections to the region at a later stage of the consultation.
