History

The constituency was created when the two-member Lambeth constituency was divided by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 for the 1885 general election. It was abolished for the 1950 general election when the area was absorbed into the Vauxhall constituency.

Boundaries

  • 1885 - 1918: The constituency was defined as comprising three wards of the parish of Lambeth: Bishop's, North Marsh and South Marsh. The wards were those used to elect members of the Lambeth Vestry, the local authority established by the Metropolis Management Act 1855.
  • 1918 - 1950: The Representation of the People Act 1918 reorganised constituencies in London, defining them in terms of the wards of the Metropolitan Boroughs which had replaced the vestries in 1900. The constituency comprised the following parts of the Metropolitan Borough of Lambeth: Bishop's Ward, Marsh Ward and the part of Prince's Ward that lay "to the north of a line running from Vauxhall Bridge along the middle of Upper Kennington Lane and Lower Kennington Lane to Newington Butts".
