Contents

Stockport was created as a two-member parliamentary borough by the Reform Act 1832. Under the Representation of the People Act 1918, the constituency was retained as one of only 12 two-member non-university seats, with the boundaries being brought into line with those of the county borough, which had expanded through absorbing the urban districts of Reddish and Heaton Norris (formerly part of the Stretford constituency), and into neighbouring parishes in the abolished constituency of Hyde.

Under the Representation of the People Act 1948, all 2-member seats were abolished and Stockport was split into the single member seats of Stockport North and Stockport South.

Following the formation of the metropolitan borough of Stockport under the Local Government Act 1972, the single Stockport seat, electing one MP, was recreated for the 1983 general election, encompassing central and southern parts of the ex-county borough, with northern parts, including Reddish, forming part of the new Denton and Reddish seat.

Map of current boundaries

1918-1950: The County Borough of Stockport.

1983–1997: The Metropolitan Borough of Stockport wards of Cale Green, Davenport, Edgeley, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Moor, and Manor.

1997–2010: The Metropolitan Borough of Stockport wards of Brinnington, Cale Green, Davenport, Edgeley, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Moor, and Manor.

Brinnington ward transferred from Denton and Reddish.

2010–present: The Metropolitan Borough of Stockport wards of Brinnington and Central, Davenport and Cale Green, Edgeley and Cheadle Heath, Heatons North, Heatons South, and Manor.

Boundaries adjusted to take account of revision of local authority wards.

Prominent members

Edward William Watkin was a railway entrepreneur, who helped to fund and plan lines across Britain, in Canada and, to a lesser extent, in the USA.

George Whiteley became later in his tenure for Stockport Chief Whip between 1905 and 1908 in the Liberal administrations of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman and H. H. Asquith.

In the 21st century, Ann Coffey was PPS to the Chancellor of the Exchequer while this role was held by Alistair Darling.

Representation of the People Act 1918 the constituency was retained as one of only 12 two member non university seats with the boundaries being brought into line with those of the county borough which had expanded through absorbing the urban districts of Reddish and Heaton Norris formerly part of the Stretford constituency and into neighbouring parishes in the abolished constituency of Hyde Under the Representation of the People Act 1948 all 2 member seats were abolished and Stockport was split into the single member seats of Stockport North and Stockport South Following the formation of the metropolitan borough of Stockport under the Local Government Act 1972 the single Stockport seat electing one MP was recreated for the 1983 general election encompassing central and southern parts of the ex county borough with northern parts including Reddish forming part of the new Denton and Reddish seat Boundaries Edit Map of current boundaries 1918 1950 The County Borough of Stockport 2 1983
