Rushen MHK Juan Watterson has branded claims that he’s trying to delay changes to the Island’s political boundaries as ‘rubbish’.

Allan Bell says delaying things at this stage means the Bill could get referred to a committee and is at risk of not being in place before the next election.

Mr Watterson says that isn’t the case:
