It was in an FT interview the other day that David Cameron said a Tory government would cut the number of MPs in the Commons by 10 per cent – a plan which would fall hardest on Wales for demographic reasons.

Interesting then that Cheryl Gillan, the shadow Welsh secretary (you learn something new every day), has been in the Commons insisting: “The Committee on Standards in Public Life has recommended a cut in the number of MPs across the UK….The special circumstances that pertain to Wales will, of course, continue to do so.”
