Glasgow North West is one of seven constituencies covering the Glasgow City council area. All are entirely within the city 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 area of the North West constituency was covered by most of the Glasgow Anniesland constituency and part of the Glasgow Kelvin constituency.
Glasgow North West lies on the north bank of the River Clyde. It is a seat of contrasts, taking in affluent areas of Glasgow, such as Jordanhill and Scotstoun; as well as more deprived areas such as the Drumchapel housing estate. The constituency was formerly a safe seat for the Labour Party.
