History

Prior to 1999, London was represented by a number of single-member constituencies. These were London Central, London East, London North, London North East, London North West, London South East, London South Inner, London South West, London West, and parts of London South and Surrey East.

The European Parliamentary Elections Act 1999 reduced this to a single constituency returning a number of MEPs.

Returned members

Members elected in 1999 who previously represented a London constituency were Pauline Green (London North, elected 1989) and Robert Evans (London North West, elected 1994).
