Initial proposals for changes to Parliamentary constituencies in Wales are now live for public consultation. The report and related maps are available for you on the Commission’s website.
The following electoral wards are currently proposed to fall within the County Borough of Torfaen (which currently form part of the existing Monmouth County Constituency):
- Croesyceiliog North
