Boundaries and Boundary Changes

Before 1969, the area formed part of the Northern Ireland Parliament constituencies of Mid Down and Iveagh.

Lagan Valley was created by the Electoral Law Act 1968 as a division of County Down. It was located to the south of Belfastmarker. The seat included Hillsboroughmarker, Drumbomarker and Carryduffmarker as well as the sprawling rural area of Ballymacbrennan, which are today split between the Lagan Valley and South Belfast constituencies.

The constituency sent one MP to the House of Commons of Northern Ireland at the Northern Ireland general election, 1969. The Parliament was prorogued on 30 March 1972, under the terms of the Northern Ireland Act 1972. It was formally abolished in 1973 when the Northern Ireland Constitution Act 1973 received Royal Assent on 18 July 1973.

The Parliamentary representative of the division was elected using the first-past-the-post system.
