Answered on

25 June 2015

The Government remains committed to equalising the size of constituencies in order to make votes of more equal value. The Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies (PVSC) Act 2011 provides for the number of UK constituencies to be reduced from 650 to 600 and there is due to be a boundary review on this basis which must report before 1 October 2018.
