Ealing North is a constituency[n 1] represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 1997 by Stephen Pound of the Labour Party.[n 2]

History[edit]

Straddling the Western Avenue and directly south of Harrow the seat occupies the north-western part of the London Borough of Ealing and from the February 1974 to 2005 General Elections inclusive, Ealing North was a Labour-Conservative marginal seat won by the party forming the government, thus a bellwether seat. This relatively long bellwether status was not kept when the Coalition Government 2010-present was agreed, but would have been were an alternative coalition agreed involving the Labour Party.

Boundaries[edit]

1950-1974: The municipal borough of Ealing wards of Greenford Central, Greenford North, Greenford South, Hanger Hill, Northolt, and Perivale.

Boundary review[edit]

Following its review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England made some minor changes to Ealing North. Part of Greenford Broadway ward, along with tiny parts of Hobbayne ward and Dormers Wells ward were transferred from Ealing North to the constituency of Ealing Southall. Tiny parts of Hobbayne ward and Dormers Wells ward were exchanged in return. Parts of Ealing Broadway ward and Hanger Hill ward were removed to the new Ealing Central and Acton constituency which now avoids containing part of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
