Stretford was a parliamentary constituency in North West England, which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

The constituency was created for the 1885 general election, and abolished for the 1997 general election. The constituency was centred on the town of Stretford and originally included an area to the south east of the city of Manchester. The boundaries changed considerably over its existence, at times extending east to include parts of the city itself and at other times including the towns of Irlam and Urmston to the west.

Boundaries

1885 - 1918

The Stretford Division of the County of Lancashire was formed by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885. The constituency consisted of a number of civil parishes and townships to the south and south-east of the city of Manchester and north-east of the borough of Stockport: ["Seventh Schedule: Counties at Large, Number of Members and Names and Contents of Divisions" Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 (48 & 49 Vict. C.23)]
*Burnage
*Chorlton cum Hardy
*Didsbury
*The portion of Heaton Norris outside the Borough of Stockport
*Levenshulme
*Reddish
*Rusholme
*Stretford
*Withington

An extension of the boundaries of Manchester meant that Rusholme became part of the city later in 1885. A futher enlargement saw Burnage, Chorlton cum Hardy, Didsbury and Withington included in Manchester in 1904. Similarly, the County Borough of Stockport was enlarged to include Reddish in 1901 and Heaton Norris in 1913.F A Youngs Jr., "Guide to the Local Administrative Units of England", Vol.II: Northern England, London, 1991] These local government boundary changes did not effect the constituency until the next parliamentary redistribution in 1918.

1918 - 1950

The Representation of the People Act 1918 reorganised constituencies throughout the United Kingdom. A new Stretford Division of Lancashire was formed. The areas in Manchester and Stockport passed to the Manchester Rusholme, Manchester Withington and Stockport constiuencies. The new Stretford constituency included areas further to the west and was defined as consisting of the following local government units of the administrative county of Lancashire: ["Ninth Schedule: Part II, Parliamentary counties: England, excluding Monmouthshire", Representation of the People Act 1918 (7 & 8 Geo. 5 C. 64)]
*The urban districts of Irlam, Stretford and Urmston
*The civil parish of Astley in Leigh Rural District
*The civil parish of Clifton in Barton upon Irwell Rural District

1950 - 1983

For the 1950 general election, a new Stretford borough constituency was created. The constituency comprised the Municipal Borough of Stretford (successor to the urban district) and the urban district of Urmston. [First Schedule, Representation of the People Act 1948, (11 & 12 Geo. 6, C 65.)] The Astley area passed to the Leigh borough constiuency and Clifton to the Farnworth county constituency.

1983 - 1997

Constituencies were redrawn for the 1983 general election to reflect the changes in local government in 1974. A new Stretford borough constituency, part of the Greater Manchester parliamentary county, was formed. The new constituency consisted of two wards of the City of Manchester, and five wards from the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford. The Manchester wards were Moss Side and Whalley Range, and the Trafford wards were Clifford, Longford, Park, Stretford and Talbot. Urmston became part of the new constituency of Davyhulme [The Parliamentary Constituencies (England) Order 1983 (S.I. 1983 No. 417)]

Abolition

The Parliamentary Constituencies (England) Order 1995, with came into effect for the 1997 general election, abolished the Stretford constituency. The area was redistributed, with Moss Side and Whalley Range added to an enlarged Manchester Central seat. The remainder became part of the new Stretford and Urmston constituency. [The Parliamentary Constituencies (England) Order 1995, (S.I. 1995 No. 1626)] The last MP for Stretford, Tony Lloyd, has been the member for Manchester Central since that date.
