List of Parliamentary Constituencies in West Glamorgan

The Preserved county of West Glamorgan is divided into five parliamentary constituencies - two borough constituencies and three county constituencies.

Constituencies

The current boundaries have been effective since the 2007 National Assembly for Wales election and the 2010 United Kingdom general election.[1] The only change from the previous scheme was a minute realignment of the boundary between Gower and Neath far too small to show on the map.
