Cllr Ken Moss said, "I support the proposals to redraw the Hyndburn parliamentary boundary and rename it 'Accrington'. This to me makes the area more easily identifiable when discussing it with people from outside the area. It is also reassuring to know that our borough will not be carved up between other areas which was the intial fear locally. Our current MP, Graham Jones, is born and bred in Accrington and it is good to know that we have the potential to keep a local man as our representative in Westminster in future years."
