MPs have just voted to halt plans to cut the number of Welsh constituencies by 25%, from 40 to 30. The proposal will now not be implemented before the next General Election. The Prime Minister wanted to reduce the size of the House of Commons from 650 to 600 members.
Wales would have seen a disproportionate cut in its MPs because Welsh constituencies have traditionally had fewer voters than in England. The defeat by 334 votes to 292 followed the Liberal Democrats decision to end their support for the proposal.
