Boundary Commission for Scotland consults on new boundaries for UK Parliament constituencies in Scotland
The Boundary Commission for Scotland has today published its initial proposals for a new map of UK Parliamentary constituencies in Scotland.
An 8 week public consultation on the proposals is now open, running until Wednesday 8 December 2021. You can view the proposals and make comments here www.bsc2023review.com
Scotland has been allocated 57 constituencies for the 2023 Review, two fewer than at present. The UK Parliament has retained 650 constituencies. England has been allocated 543 (+10), Northern Ireland 18 (no change) and Wales 32 (-8).
Two of these 57 (Na h-Eileanan an Iar (the Western Isles) and Orkney and Shetland) are protected in the legislation and will not be subject to change.
