Boundaries

Harrow East constituency within the parliamentary county of Middlesex, showing boundaries used from 1945-50.

Traditionally a better area for the Labour Party than neighbouring Harrow West, the seat has still been mostly Conservative since the Second World War, but Labour did win here in landslide victories in 1945 and 1966. They won here again in 1997, and have held on in the two general elections since, a feat they didn't achieve in previous landslides.

It is currently represented by Tony McNulty, the Employment Minister.
