Bradford West is a borough 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.

Boundaries

This constituency covers the western part of Bradford, comprising six complete wards of the City of Bradford: City, Clayton and Fairweather Green, Heaton, Manningham, Thornton and Allerton, Toller. It also includes part of Little Horton ward.

However, the Boundary Commission provisionally recommended in 2004 that the Little Horton ward should cease to be divided between three constituencies and should become part of the Bradford North constituency, which would be renamed Bradford East. Following objections from the Liberal Democrats, a public enquiry was held in July 2005. However, the Liberal Democrats did not attend to support their case, leading the Commission to uphold the proposal and describe the inquiry as "a quite unnecessary waste of public money".ref|wastemoney

The new constituency boundaries for Bradford West will therefore consist of six wards: City, Clayton and Fairweather Green, Heaton, Manningham, Thornton and Allerton, and Toller.
