    The European Parliament's Constitutional Affairs Committee voted in favour of a plan to reduce the number of seats in the European Parliament from 751 to 705 after the UK's departure, and to redistribute the remaining 27 currently British seats to compensate other member states for disparities in representation. France's MEPs each have an electorate of 900,000, while the figure for some other member states, such as Slovakia, Bulgaria, Finland, Ireland and Denmark, is less than half that.
