for the House of Commons
Boundary of Glasgow North in Scotland.
|Subdivisions of Scotland||City of Glasgow|
|Member of parliament||Patrick Grady (SNP)|
|Created from||Glasgow Maryhill
|European Parliament constituency||Scotland|
Glasgow North is a burgh constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (at Westminster). It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post voting system.
Glasgow North is one of seven constituencies covering the Glasgow City council area. All are entirely within the council area.
Glasgow North covers the Glasgow City Council wards of Kelvindale, Hyndland, Hillhead, Partick, Woodlands, North Kelvin, Wyndford, Maryhill, Summerston and Firhill.
Prior to the 2005 general election, the city area was covered by ten constituencies, of which two straddled boundaries with other council areas. The North constituency includes most of the former Glasgow Maryhill constituency, central sections of the former Glasgow Kelvin constituency and a Kelvindale area from the former Glasgow Anniesland constituency. Scottish Parliament constituencies retain the names and boundaries of the older Westminster constituencies.
The North constituency has Glasgow University within its boundaries, and stretches out through Kelvindale to the large Summerston housing development. The largest element of the seat, in terms of former constituency boundaries, comes from the Maryhill constituency, which was a mainly working class seat. The North seat also includes the more middle class areas of Hillhead, Hyndland and Kelvindale.
