The four boundary commissions of the UK have published their final recommendations for the shape of parliamentary constituencies for the next general election.
The commsisions each submitted their recommendations to parliament on June 28th, ahead of the July 1st deadline.
The government is now mandated to accept the recommendations and put them into law by the end of October at the latest.
Parliament cannot amend any of the recommendations made by the commissions.
Once written into law, the boundaries will form the basis for the next general election, but will not affect any of the by-elections currently scheduled.
Check out ‘Parliamentary constituency boundary changes: What you need to know’ for a detailed analysis of the final set of recommendations.
