FOLLOWING Rishi Sunak calling a General Election for July 4 there will be fewer seats to contest in Scotland, with England benefiting from more seats, as new constituency boundaries come into effect.

The Boundary Commissions, a public body responsible for determining the boundaries of parliamentary constituencies, have set out new constituency boundaries across the UK which will replace those that have been in use since 2010.

Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland all have their own Boundary Commissions, and the next review is not scheduled until October 2031.

The review by the Boundary Commissions used a national electoral quota to determine the number of constituencies available to the different countries.

The set quota, 73,393 electors, was based on the 47.1 million registered electorate on March 2, 2020. There are a few exceptions, particularly affecting island seats, the commission's work within a plus or minus of 5% of the quota.

The electorates for new seats could be no smaller than 69,724 and no larger than 77,062 electors.

The number of seats at the House of Commons is fixed at 650 and due to the quota England benefits the most from the new boundary's changes with both Scotland and Wales losing out.

England's tally of seats rises from 533 to 543 as they gain 10 additional seats Scotland will lose two as the number of seats will change from 59 to 57.

Wales are set to lose eight seats, meaning a loss of a fifth of their total seats as they go from 40 to 38.

The two constituencies that are set to change in Scotland for the upcoming General Election are Ochil and South Perthshire and Glasgow Central.

Ochil and South Perthshire will now be split between Alloa and Grangemouth and Perth and Kinross-shire.

Glasgow Central will be split between the other wards in the city, with Glasgow East absorbing more than 40% of the previous constituency electoral members.

There are a couple of useful free tools to make sure you’re up-to-date if your constituency lines have changed.
