This is a list of parliamentary constituencies in Greater London from 1983 until 1997. Each borough constituency returned one member of parliament (MP) to the United Kingdom House of Commons.

Parliamentary seats in England were redistributed under an order made in March 1983.[1] Constituencies were defined as groupings of London boroughs or of their electoral wards.

The constituencies were first used at the general election of 1983, and again in October 1987 and 1992. Constituencies were again redrawn prior to the 1997 general election.
