Ashton under Lyne is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. In recent years it has become a strongly Labour seat.

Boundaries

The constituency covers the Failsworth East, Failsworth West and Hollinwood electoral wards of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham and the Ashton Hurst, Ashton St. Michael's, St. Peter's, Ashton Waterloo, Droylsden East and Droylsden West wards of the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside. The addition of Failsworth and Hollinwood has made little difference to the seat's political loyalties; it remains safely Labour.
