Constituency boundaries and council area

The Roxburgh and Berwickshire constituency was created at the same time as the Scottish Parliament, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of an existing Westminster constituency. In 2005, however, Scottish Westminster constituencies were mostly replaced with new constituencies [See [http://www.bcomm-scotland.gov.uk/ "The 5th Periodical Report of the Boundary Commission for Scotland] "] .

The Holyrood constituency covers an eastern portion of the Scottish Borders council area. The rest of the council area is covered by the Tweeddale, Ettrick and Lauderdale constituency, which also covers a western portion of the Midlothian council area.
