Our Final Recommendations Report was published on 10 September 2018. You can view the Report on the Final Recommendations page.
The 2018 Review of Parliamentary constituencies started on 24 February 2016. In accordance with schedule 2 of the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011, the number of Parliamentary constituencies across the UK will reduce to 600. In Northern Ireland, the decrease will be from 18 seats to 17 at the next Westminster elections, expected in 2020. This will mean redrawing the existing constituency boundaries.
The Commission was required to submit its report on final recommendations to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland no later than 1 October 2018. This statutory obligation was met on 5 September 2018. The Final Recommendations were laid in parliament by the Government on 10 September, at which time they were published by all four UK Boundary Commissions.
