Notes: Election was held on May 1st 1997. All percentages are expressed as a proportion of the overall UK total. "Most Significant Swing From" indicates the party from which there was the most "significant" swing in May 1997, compared to the previous (April 1992) General Election. This is usually the first or second placed party, and typically indicates the top party that lost the most (or gained the least) votes, or the party which lost the seat. The more pronounced (less faded) the party colour, the greater the swing from that party.

Where constituency boundaries changed between 1992 and 1997, estimates of what the 1992 results would have been if the 1997 boundaries had been used are taken from the definitive work by Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher: "Media Guide to the New Parliamentary Constituencies" (ISBN: 0 948858 21 4)
