London North East was a constituency that elected a single Member of the European Parliament (MEP). It was created in 1979 and abolished in 1999 when it was replaced by the multi-member London constituency.

The European constituency was formed by the grouping of ten parliamentary constituencies used for the elections of members of the UK House of Commons: Bethnal Green and Bow, Chingford, Hackney Central, Hackney North and Stoke Newington, Hackney South and Shoreditch, Leyton, Newham North West, Newham South, Stepney and Poplar and Walthamstow.[1]

United Kingdom Parliamentary constituencies were redrawn in 1983 and the European constituencies were altered to reflect this. The new seat comprised the following Westminster constituencies: Bethnal Green and Stepney, Chingford, Hackney North and Stoke Newington, Hackney South and Shoreditch, Leyton, Newham North West, Newham South and Walthamstow.[2] The same boundaries were used in 1984, 1989 and 1994.[3] [4]

The seat was won by Alfred Lomas of the Labour Party at the first election in 1979. Lomas held the seat until its abolition in 1999.
