What a difference a day makes

Wales is represented in two parliaments - one in Cardiff and one in Westminster. In Westminster, Members of Parliament hold seats which represent constituencies. These are areas of the country which have defined boundaries.

These have been decided by impartial boundary commissions, looking at how the number of voters in areas have changed and making adjustments to borders and names.Many Westminster seats will change radically at the general election on 4th July, under plans which will cut the number of MPs in Wales from 40 to 32.

The boundary commission announced last year that several Welsh seats would vanish in their current form. With the exception of Ynys Môn, every Westminster constituency in Wales will see changes. And some of the existing names for constituencies are disappearing completely, such as Arfon.1 

In 2019 the Tories earned their largest haul since the Thatcher years, with 14 seats. Welsh Labour won 22 seats - still the largest party despite the performance of the Conservatives.

The first minister and Welsh Labour leader Vaughan Gething said on X: "People across Wales are calling out for a change of government, an end to Tory chaos and two Labour governments working together - for Wales and Britain."2

Higher Growth Future 

Wales’ diverse business community has demonstrated its resilience since the last General Election.

Since 2019, Welsh companies have weathered many economic challenges from Covid19 and skills shortages, to global supply chain disruption and energy price rises. Welsh business wants the new government to plan a trajectory to a higher-growth future. 

The British Chambers of Commerce have proposed policies in five key areas People and Work, The Local Economy of the Future, Global Britain, Green Innovation, The Digital Revolution.

Chambers Wales endorses these, but also asks for government focus on fast tracking existing Welsh projects and investment in skills and infrastructure.
