Welsh MPs: Views in Bridgend on plans to cut numbers

A new Parliamentary map outlining plans to cut the number of Welsh MPs by more than a quarter has been published.

The number of Welsh seats in the House of Commons would fall from 40 to 29, with the size of Westminster constituencies increasing.

The previous Conservative/Lib Dem coalition government introduced the law to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600, as a means of cutting the cost of politics.

People in the Labour seat of Bridgend - which faces merger with part of the Tory-held Vale of Glamorgan - gave their views on the plan.
