Ministers will be urged to confirm today that they won't push ahead with changes to the way Assembly Members are elected. Labour's Geraint Davies will use a debate in the Commons to say that a recent defeat of plans for parliamentary boundaries should spell the end of similar plans for the Assembly.
The proposals are set out in a Wales Office Green Paper which would also introduce other changes such as fixing Assembly terms and overturning a ban on candidates standing both as constituency and regional AMs. Geraint Davies says the parliamentary boundaries failure undermines the proposals.
UK Government sources acknowledge that the plans to alter Assembly boundaries will have to be looked at again now that the parliamentary constituencies won't be changing but say that the Green Paper was 'about a lot more than boundaries' and insist that ministers will push ahead with it.
