Independent on Sunday: "Coalition braced for boundaries revolt - MPs may mutiny over changes to constituencies"

Link to Independent on Sunday

"David Cameron and Nick Clegg are braced for a collapse in coalition discipline, when dozens of MPs learn this week that their constituencies are to be axed.

"The redrawing of parliamentary boundaries, which will cut the number of MPs from 650 to 600, will ignite a political storm tomorrow, with government whips fearing that the prospect of being kicked out of the Commons could lead some MPs into rebellion for the next three years.

"MPs will be briefed on the plans tomorrow, before they are published officially by the Boundary Commission on Tuesday."
