Angus (UK Parliament constituency)
|for the House of Commons|
Boundary of Angus in Scotland.
|Subdivisions of Scotland||Angus|
|Major settlements||Arbroath, Brechin, Forfar and Montrose|
|Member of Parliament||Mike Weir (SNP)|
|Created from||East Angus|
|European Parliament constituency||Scotland|
It was created for the 1997 general election, largely replacing East Angus. It is now a marginal seat between the Scottish National Party and the Conservatives. As a result of boundary changes for the 2005 general election, boundaries are now quite different from those of the Angus Scottish Parliament constituency, which was created in 1999.
Until the 2005 general election, it covered the south-east of the Angus council area, north-eastern and north-western areas of the Dundee City council area, and a small eastern portion of the Perth and Kinross council area. The north-west of the Angus council area was within the North Tayside constituency.
Scottish Parliament constituencies retain the older boundaries.
