The Boundary Commission for Scotland has launched an eight-week public consultation on proposals which include the West Dunbartonshire Westminster constituency.

The Boundary Commission for Scotland began its 2023 Review of UK Parliament constituencies in Scotland in January 2021.

Scotland has been allocated 57 constituencies for the 2023 Review, which is two less than at present and each constituency must contain at least 69,724 Parliamentary electors and no more than 77,062.

If necessary, the Commission can recommend a constituency with an electorate lower than the minimum if it is larger than 12,000 square kilometres, although no constituency can be larger than 13,000 square kilometres.

Comments left during the eight week consultation will be published early next year and interested parties will have the opportunity to comment further on the views gathered through the consultation.  There will also be  up to five public hearings held.

In late 2022 the Commission may publish revised proposals for consultation before the final recommendations are published by 1 July 2023.
