Bishops Ward ie Lambeth from Thames to just beyond China Walk Estate is being tagged on to Southwark and Old Bermondsey, becoming 7.9% of that constituency. For all other purposes including election of councillors it remains in Lambeth. Simon Hughes
gave evidence in 2012 about the disadvantages for voters in this situation (see SE1 website). Many local residents have suggested Bishops goes in with the two Lambeth wards to its south. There is more information on SE1 website or that of Boundary Commission.
