Purpose of consultation
Public Consultation on 2018 Review of UK Parliament Constituencies - Revised Proposals
Across the UK, the number of UK Parliament constituencies is being reduced from 650 to 600. In Scotland there will be 53 in place of the current 59 constituencies.
The Review covers all of Scotland except for Orkney and Shetland Constituency and Na h-Eileanan an Iar constituency which are fixed by legislation.
Every constituency must have between 71,031 and 78,507 electors, unless they are larger than 12,000 km when they can have fewer electors. A constituency must be no larger than 13,000 km. The legislation governing this review is the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended).
The Boundary Commission for Scotland published their Initial Proposals in October 2016 for a 12 week public consultation and held 5 Public Hearings throughout Scotland. They received almost 1,500 responses to our consultation.
The Boundary Commission for Scotland are now seeking the public’s views on the revised proposals for UK Parliament Constituencies
