Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Minimum of 35 MPs for Wales — 26 Jan 2011 at 19:57

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted against requiring a minimum of 35 MPs for Wales.

The House of Lords was considering the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1]. The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 89BA: Clause 11, page 11, line 26, at end insert-
  • "(5) If the number of constituencies allocated to Wales under sub-paragraph (3) is fewer than 35, an additional allocation shall be made to Wales to ensure that it has 35 constituencies.
  • (6) Where an additional allocation is made under sub-paragraph (5) above, sub-paragraph (7) shall apply in place of rule 2.
  • (7) The electorate of any constituency in Wales shall be-
  • (a) no less than 95% of the Welsh electoral quota; and
  • (b) no more than 105% of that quota;
  • the "Wales electoral quota" meaning W/P, where W is the electorate of Wales and P is the number of constituencies allocated to Wales."
