2023 Parliamentary Review - Initial Proposals

The 2023 Review of Parliamentary Constituencies is conducted in accordance with the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended).

The Rules of the Act set out the number of constituencies to be provided for Wales for the 2024 Westminster Parliamentary Election. It also sets out that all constituencies should have an electorate within ±5% of the UK average or quota.

Under the legislation the Commission will be required to base its recommendations on the number of electors whose names appear on the register of parliamentary electors published by the Office for National Statistics on 5 January 2021.

The UK electoral quota is to the nearest whole number is 73,393. Each proposed constituency must therefore have an electorate that is between 69,724 and 77,062.

Initial Proposals for the Parliamentary constituencies in Wales were published on 8 September 2021 with a period of consultation now open until 3 November 2021.
