|European Parliament constituency|

|Member state||United Kingdom|
Prior to its uniform adoption of proportional representation in 1999, the United Kingdom used first-past-the-post for the European elections in England, Scotland and Wales. The European Parliament constituencies used under that system were smaller than the later regional constituencies and only had one Member of the European Parliament each.
The constituency of Glasgow was one of them.
When it was created in Scotland in 1979, it consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Glasgow Cathcart, Glasgow Central, Glasgow Craigton, Glasgow Garscadden, Glasgow Govan, Glasgow Hillhead, Glasgow Kelvingrove, Glasgow Maryhill, Glasgow Pollok, Glasgow Provan, Glasgow Queen's Park, Glasgow Shettleston, Glasgow Springburn, although this may not have been true for the whole of its existence.
