Parliamentary boundary changes proposed for Brent
20 October 2017
The three Brent constituencies of Brent Central, Brent North and Hampstead & Kilburn could all be scrapped from 2022, should proposed boundary changes go ahead.
Under the proposed changes, which are out to public consultation until 11 December, constituency boundaries will be redrawn with Brent residents being represented by five MP's covering new constituencies of Kilburn, Greenford & Sudbury, Harrow South & Kenton, Wembley, and Willesden & Shepherd's Bush.
If the plans do go ahead, Wembley will be the only constituency solely based in Brent, with the four other MP's also representing residents in neighbouring boroughs.
The Boundary Commission has published its revised proposals for new constituency boundaries as part of a process which started in 2011, when MP's backed a principle to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600 to save public money.
If approved by Parliament, the changes would take effect from 2022 - the scheduled date of the next General Election.
