Allocation of delegates:

Each Westminster constituency (S.I. 1995/2992) elects five delegates by proportional representation. These 90 delegates are then 'topped-up' by 20 delegates, with the Top 10 parties receiving two delegates each (1996 ch.11. Sch. 1, sec. 14-16). The proportional system in the constituencies works as follows (simplified, sec. 8-13):
1. The quota for each constituency, with T being the number of valid votes polled and d the number of delegates to be returned: Q = (T/(d+1))+1
Example (Foyle):
T = 45184 d = 5 Q = 7531.67 = 7532
2. Each party's number of votes in a constituency is divided by the quota; delegates are returned according to the whole number so derived. If fewer than five delegates are returned in this first step, a party's vote V is devided thus: V/(N+1), with N being the number of delegates already returned. The party with the highest number (fraction) is allocated a delegate. This second step is repeated until all five delegates are duely returned.

I have used the same system to calculate the comparative GE1992not seats.
