Administrative Ward Geographical Extents

Hi – I’d like to be able to access an enumerated list of all adminstrative wards in the Data Hub (at the moment this seems to come back in a browser request to http://data.beta.mksmart.org/entity/ward as HTML not JSON) so I may iterate through the list and for each one selected retrieve its geographical extent. At the moment I can do this via the Ordnance Survey request http://data.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/doc/7000000000038413.json (which is Milton Keynes). I can iterate through this list requesting each “http://data.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/ontology/admingeo/ward” in turn and getting the extent from (for example) “http://data.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/id/geometry/11990-45” and extracting the GML contained therein. An api for such geography would save a lot of hassle and not require a third party api key. This might be worth adopting for other entities as well if possible and affordable
