The boundary review, ordered in 2013 sees Tulip Siddiq’s seat of Hampstead and Kilburn split, to become their own separate constituencies.

The new Hampstead seat will take part of Mike Freer’s Golders Green and Finchley seat, which will be abolished, and Sir Keir Starmer’s Holborn and St Pancras constituency,

The rest of Freer’s seat will be absorbed into Hendon.

Kilburn will include part of Brent Central, as well as Westminster North, which will also be abolished.
