Boundary changes: Gains the Pinner wards and Hatch End from Harrow West in order to bring the previously undersized seat up to size, changing its name from Ruislip-Northwood in the process. It loses South Ruislip, Cavendish, and Manor wards to Uxbridge and South Ruislip, while gaining part of West Ruislip ward.

Profile: The most north-westerly seat in London, covering Ickenham, Ruislip, Northwood, Eastcote and now Pinner and Hatch End. The western part of the seat is semi-rural taking in Ruislip Common, the village of Harefield and the farms surrounding it. This is wealthy, middle-class suburbia and is solidly Conservative. The addition of Conservative Pinner renders it even more so, and the new seat will be one of the Conservatives` safest.
