Constituencies and council areas

2011–

As a result of the First Periodic Review of Scottish Parliament Boundaries the boundaries of the region and constituencies were redrawn for the 2011 Scottish Parliament election.

Region Constituencies
  1. Glasgow Anniesland
  2. Glasgow Cathcart
  3. Glasgow Kelvin
  4. Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn
  5. Glasgow Pollok
  6. Glasgow Provan
  7. Glasgow Shettleston
  8. Glasgow Southside
  9. Rutherglen

1999–2011

In terms of first past the post constituencies the region included:

Region Constituencies Constituencies
  1. Glasgow Anniesland
  2. Glasgow Baillieston
  3. Glasgow Cathcart
  4. Glasgow Govan
  5. Glasgow Kelvin
  6. Glasgow Maryhill
  7. Glasgow Pollok
  8. Glasgow Rutherglen .
  9. Glasgow Shettleston
  10. Glasgow Springburn

The constituencies were created with the names and boundaries of Westminster constituencies, as existing in 1999. Scottish Westminster constituencies were mostly replaced with new constituencies in 2005.[1] Holyrood constituencies were unaltered.

Nine of the constituencies are entirely within the Glasgow City council area. The Rutherglen constituency includes a north-eastern area of the South Lanarkshire council area. Also, although central with respect to the region and entirely within the city area, Shettleston is in the south-east of the city area, on its boundary with the South Lanarkshire area.

The South Lanarkshire area is otherwise divided between the Central Scotland and South of Scotland regions.

Council areas are as defined in 1996, and may be subject to change after the next Scottish Parliament election.
