The Scottish Boundary Commission has launched an eight-week public consultation on the proposals, bringing the number of MPs returning to Westminster to 57 from 59 in the previous vote.
Glasgow and north of Scotland will have seats that will lose seats, while sweeping changes will change boundaries and zoning nationwide, the first change since 2005.
In contrast, England will see an increase of 10 MPs, while Wales will lose eight if the changes are implemented.
Northern Ireland has the same number of seats.
Proposals to address issues of voter equality in constituencies will have to be approved by parliament, but the commission hopes that by 2024, things will change. General election Expected.
The survey parameters state that the number of voters in each constituency should be between 70,000 and 77,000, as long as the area does not cover more than 12,000 square kilometers.
Lord Matthews, the commission’s deputy chairman and reviewer, said: “I am convinced that this is a promising start to meet the requirements of the new rules, which means that the number of constituencies in Scotland is less than 59. The tax will be 57, and that there should be the same number of voters in each constituency.
“We have made proposals today that do so and we believe that the rules set by Parliament are well implemented.
“Today is the beginning of a process, and now we want to hear the views of the people. We will consider the responses to the consultation and make changes where appropriate and where legislation allows us. We would strongly encourage voters.” Let them hear their thoughts.
“We welcome all comments on our suggestions on our consulting site at bcs2023review.com.
“We want to hear suggestions specifically on two aspects, suggestions for alternative boundaries that are in line with legislative requirements and constituency names.”
Briefing about the changes, Professor Elsa Henderson, who is also the reviewing commissioner, said that changes in population size in different parts of the country have signaled changes.
“As a result, there is a wide range of voters in the current Scottish constituencies.
“The smallest constituencies are Catholic, Sutherland and Easter Ross with 46,000 – about 47,000 voters – but the largest constituencies with 88,000 voters are Lynn Lethgo and East Falkirk, with approx. 41 has a range of 41,000 voters. ”
The difference is only 18,000 in Northern Ireland, 36,000 in Wales and 57,000 in England.
“When there are wide variations in parity, it means that votes in small constituencies can be equal to two votes in large constituencies,” said Professor Henderson.
“So if everyone is electing members of the same legislature, but their votes are more valuable where they live, then obviously that’s a problem.
“The legislation is designed to ensure that electoral equality in the Westminster election is the engine of electoral justice.”
According to Professor Henderson, Scotland’s 27 constituencies were below the quota for voter turnout and 12 were above it.
SNP Westminster Deputy Leader Kirsten Oswald MP said: “The Tories plan to further reduce Scotland’s representation in Westminster, while increasing the number of MPs for England, making Scotland an independent country. Emphasizes the need to be – with full control of our own democratic decisions and the full authority needed to build a strong, just and green future.
“The SNP will vehemently oppose any attempt to weaken Scotland’s voice in the UK Parliament, but the reality is that Scotland will always vote under a broken Westminster system – as we have called Tory austerity. I have seen a decrease, Bridget. And the seizure of power against the will of Scotland.
Freedom is the only way to protect Scotland from undermining Westminster decisions and Scotland has a great future as an independent country.
A spokesman for the UK government said: “Parliamentary reforms will ensure fair and equal representation of voters across the UK.
“Each constituency will have equal representation in the UK Parliament, with most rural Scotland constituencies receiving special protection.”
