Wolverhampton North East 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

Wolverhampton North East is one of three constituencies covering the city of Wolverhampton, covering the northern and north-eastern parts of the city. The boundaries run east from the city centre towards Willenhall and north-west towards Tettenhall.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in the West Midlands, the Boundary Commission for England have made minor changes to the constituencies in Wolverhampton, realigning boundaries to match the new ward boundaries introduced in the city in 2004. There are seven wards which form the Wolverhampton North East seat: Bushbury North, Bushbury South and Low Hill, Fallings Park, Heath Town, Oxley, Wednesfield North and Wednesfield South.

History

Wolverhampton North East was notable in the 1987 General Election for being one of only a small number of seats that the Conservatives gained from Labour. It reverted to type, however, in the 1992 election, when the current Labour MP Ken Purchase first took office.
