The reduction of MP's was part of the deal struck with the Lib Dems when the coalition first got together. The Cons agreed to a referendum on the AV voting system - it bombed. The other part of the deal was a change in boundaries to make all constituencies roughly equal in terms of the number of voters in each.

The point of the exercise (we are told) is that reducing the number of MP's by 50 will save over 12 million per year. By making each constituency roughly equal in terms of number of voters should, in theory, make general elections fairer.
