Stoke-on-Trent North 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.

Boundaries

Each of the three constituencies of Stoke-on-Trent contain two of the historic ‘six towns’ of the Potteries. Burslem and Tunstall are Stoke-on-Trent North's historic towns.

A local inquiry of the Boundary Commission For England was held in Stoke-on-Trent on 25th and 26th June 2002. To raise Stoke-on-Trent North's electorate to nearly 70,000, the inquiry recommended that the six wards in the north of the City - Burslem North, Burslem South, Chell and Packmoor, East Valley (consisting of most of Smallthorne, Sneyd Green, Milton and Baddeley Green), Norton and Bradeley, and Tunstall - are joined by four wards from the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme - Butt Lane, Kidsgrove, Ravenscliffe, and Talke.

The new Parliamentary constituency will become a reality once the Commission's recommendations have been accepted by Parliament.
