Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Clause 11 — Welsh Constituancies — 20 Oct 2010 at 21:00

The majority of MPs voted to keep the current Welsh Assembly constituencies unchanged by future boundary reviews which will affect UK Parliamentary constituencies.

Welsh Assembly constituencies are currently the same as UK Parliamentary constituencies; MP's support for this clause means they can (and will, as a result of other measures in the Bill) diverge in the future.

The division was on if Clause 11 of the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1] as amended by the Commons[2] ought remain part of the Bill.

The effect of the clause is:

  • Changes to UK Parliamentary Constituencies would not change Welsh Assembly constituencies.
  • Permitting the results of reviews of Welsh constituencies currently in progress to effect the Welsh assembly constituencies but not the UK Parliament constituencies.

Clause 11 was neither debated, or amended during the Committee of the whole house which preceded this vote.

David Davies, MP for Monmouthshire, raised a point of order complaining about the fact there was no time for a debate on this clause[3]. He was referred to the fact MPs had agreed a programme motion which was governing the timetable for proceedings.

During the Debate on the Act in general Conservative MP Mark Field said[4]:

  • The Welsh position has been maintained since we drew up the constituencies. There were 38 protected constituencies there until 1983, and 40 thereafter. The position of Wales has been protected, and it is massively over-represented. That is the reason for the move to equalise the size of electorates, which I also fully support.

During the Debate Labour MP Chris Bryant said[5]:

About the Project

The Public Whip is a not-for-profit, open source website created in 2003 by Francis Irving and Julian Todd and now run by Bairwell Ltd.

There are lots of plans afoot, including extensive redevelopment of the site and plans for new functionality. To keep up with what's happening, please check out the blog. We're working on updating all the contact details throughout the site, but if you'd like to talk to us about the project, please email [email protected]
