Glasgow North is a burgh constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (at Westminster). It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post voting system.
It was first contested at the 2005 general election, and the incumbent MP is Patrick Grady who was elected for the Scottish National Party in 2015, but is currently suspended from the party as of 26 June 2022; pending the outcome of a police investigation for allegations of sexual harassment.
At the 2016 referendum on UK membership of the European Union, the constituency voted overwhelmingly in favour of "Remain" with 78.4%. This was the fourth-highest support for a Remain vote in any constituency in the United Kingdom.
The Glasgow wards of Firhill, Hillhead, Hyndland, Kelvindale, Maryhill, North Kelvin, Partick, Summerston, Woodlands, and Wyndford.
Glasgow North is one of seven constituencies covering the Glasgow City council area. All are entirely within the council area.
Prior to the 2005 general election, the city area was covered by ten constituencies, of which two straddled boundaries with other council areas. The North constituency includes most of the former Glasgow Maryhill constituency, central sections of the former Glasgow Kelvin constituency and a Kelvindale area from the former Glasgow Anniesland constituency. Scottish Parliament constituencies retain the names and boundaries of the older Westminster constituencies.
The Glasgow North constituency has Glasgow University within its boundaries, and stretches out through Kelvindale to the large Summerston housing development. The largest element of the seat, in terms of former constituency boundaries, comes from the Maryhill constituency, which was a mainly working class seat. The North seat also includes the more middle class areas of Hillhead, Hyndland and Kelvindale.
