Boundaries

The constituency was created in 1974 from the former seats of Wembley North and Wembley South. A safe Conservative seat for many years, it was held by Lancastrian former headmaster Rhodes Boyson with ease before Labour's victory in 1997 helped win this seat. In both the 1997 and 2001 general elections, Brent North produced the highest swing of all constituencies with a massive swing in favour of the Labour Party.[1] Labour's percentage majority halved at the 2005 general election, from 30.1% to 15.8%.[2]

Following the review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England has reduced the number of parliamentary seats wholly within Brent to two - Brent North and the new Brent Central, along with a third cross-borough seat, Hampstead and Kilburn, which will include wards from both Brent and Camden. The electoral wards used in the creation of the modified Brent North are:

  • Alperton, Barnhill, Fryent, Kenton, Northwick Park, Preston, Queensbury, Sudbury, Wembley Central

The other wards in the London Borough of Brent are used to create the Brent Central constituency, with the exception of the wards of Brondesbury Park, Kilburn and Queens Park, which will form part of the new Hampstead and Kilburn seat.
