Scottish Boundary Commission: We don't need no stinkin' PDFs


Boundary Commission for Scotland

Thanks for the coverage of the Guardian Computing story about the Boundary Commission for Scotland’s intention to distribute a shape file of its Initial Proposals for constituencies when these are published on 13 October.

However, your headline is grossly misleading. We will be publishing PDFs as well as distributing a shape file. For many of those interested in the review, PDF remains a very valuable and easy-to-use tool for viewing a map of our Proposals.

Hugh Buchanan

Secretary, Boundary Commission for Scotland
