Poplar and Canning Town 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

The seat has existed since 1997, and covers (as the name suggests) Poplar and Canning Town, as well as Limehouse and the Isle of Dogs. The seat was formed following a 1995 boundary review, from parts of the Tower Hamlets, Bow and Poplar and Newham South constituencies.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England have recommended the creation of an altered Poplar and Limehouse seat, to be fought at the Next United Kingdom general election.
