Brent North is a parliamentary 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

A safe Conservative seat for many years, it was held by Lancastrian former headmaster Rhodes Boyson with ease before Labour's victory in 1997 helped win this seat. Labour had their best swing here in the 2001 general election with a massive swing towards them, possibly as a result of the loss of Boyson's personal following, since he was no longer standing; it was much reduced in the 2005 general election, but still fairly comfortable.

Following the review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England has reduced the number of parliamentary seats wholly within Brent to two - Brent North and the new Brent Central, along with a third cross-borough seat, Hampstead and Kilburn, which will include wards from both Brent and Camden. The electoral wards used in the creation of the modified Brent North are:

*Alperton, Barnhill, Fryent, Kenton, Northwick Park, Preston, Queensbury, Sudbury, Wembley Central

The other wards in the London Borough of Brent are used to create the Brent Central constituency, with the exception of the wards of Brondesbury Park, Kilburn and Queens Park, which will form part of the new Hampstead and Kilburn seat.
