Greenock and Inverclyde was a burgh constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1997 until 2005, when it was replaced by the Inverclyde constituency. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) using the first-past-the-post voting system.
The Inverclyde District electoral divisions of Greenock Central East, Greenock South West, and Inverclyde West.
The unusual choice of name (since the town of Greenock is in Inverclyde) reflects the fact that the constituency was created from parts of two predecessor constituencies, Greenock and Port Glasgow and Renfrew West and Inverclyde.
