What are the benefits of changing to a single constituency? Are there other options?
This Let's Talk panel debate the arguments for and against the Falkland Islands changing to a single constituency.
There are currently two constituencies, Camp and Stanley. On January 31, 2020, the Legislative Assembly passed a bill allowing the constitution to be changed if a single constituency was voted for. Public meetings on West Falkland and in Camp were held in January prior to the original referendum date of March 26, 2020. With COVID-19 causing a delay, the new referendum date is September 24, 2020.
Host Mark Lewis is joined by MLA Roger Spink, MLA Teslyn Barkman, and Camp residents Bill Luxton and Trevor McPhee to debate the matter.
This programme was broadcast on Falklands Radio on September 9, 2020.
