Boundary Changes: Nick Clegg has dashed Conservative hopes that constituency boundary changes desired by David Cameron might be put in place. Mr Clegg had already said he would block the changes, thought to benefit the Tories electorally, after Conservative MPs scuppered his House of Lords reforms. However some Tories have suggested Mr Clegg would still do a deal, approving boundary changes in return for their backing on other Lib Dem policies. Asked by the EDP if there was anything that could change his position, Mr Clegg said: “No”.
