Boundaries

The County of the City of Glasgow wards of Gorbals, Govanhill, and Hutchesontown, and part of Langside ward.

The constituency covered part of inner city Glasgow, to the south of the River Clyde and in the south-west of the city.

Before the February 1974 general election, the area had formed the major part of Glasgow Gorbals (Gorbals, Hutchesontown and part of Govanhill wards) and part of Glasgow Cathcart (the rest of Govanhill and Langside wards).

In the 1983 redistribution, this constituency disappeared. 675 voters (2.0% of its electorate) were transferred to Glasgow Cathcart, 27,528 electors became part of Glasgow Central (79.7%), and the remaining 6,332 voters (18.4%) were included in the electorate of Glasgow Rutherglen.
