Hampstead & Kilburn will be a parliamentary constituency which will elect one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It will cover the north-western part of the London Borough of Camden and the far east of Brent.
Following their review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England reduced the number of constituencies across the boroughs of Brent and Camden from five to four. The seat of Hampstead and Kilburn is a new creation resulting from these changes.
The electoral wards used in the new constituency are from the boroughs of Brent and Camden and from the current constituencies of Brent East, Brent South and Hampstead and Highgate.
Estimates of party support
The Rallings and Thrasher calculations for a media consortium of BBC, ITV, Sky and the Press Association are that on the new boundaries for this constituency the result in 2005 would have been Labour 15,138 (37%), Liberal Democrat 14,664 (36%), Conservative 9,559 (23%) and other parties 2,314, putting Labour 474 votes ahead..
