HC Deb 18 July 1977 vol 935 c398W
Mr. Lawson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the provisional 1977 electorate of each of the counties of Northern Ireland.

Mr. Carter

It is not practicable to give the information in this form as the Northern Ireland electoral divisions are not co-terminous with county boundaries. However, according to the Northern Ireland Register of Electors published on 14th February 1977 the size of the electorate in each constituency for parliamentary elections is as follows:

Constituency Electorate
Belfast, North 69,271
Belfast, South 71,790
Belfast, East 77,409
Belfast, West 61,405
Antrim, North 102,783
Antrim, South 124,398
Armagh 92,443
Down, North 97,133
Down, South 89,170
Londonderry 94,201
Mid-Ulster 81,062
Fermanagh and South Tyrone 71,849
