The Vale of Glamorgan constituency was formed out of the Barry constituency in 1983, with Penarth moving into the new Cardiff South and Penarth (which prior to this was simply Cardiff South).

As part of the Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies the Boundary Commission for Wales proposed changes to almost all the existing Welsh Westminster constituencies, giving some of them Welsh language names.[2]
