The United Kingdom general election of October 1974 took place on 10 October 1974. It was the second of two United Kingdom general elections held that year. Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson, having taken power in a hung parliament after the February election, returned to the polls and won a tiny majority of three. In both elections the Conservative Party's hopes of forming a government had been weakened by the decision of Ulster Unionist Party MPs to withdraw from their long-standing acceptance of the Conservative whip in parliament, due to their opposition to the 1973 Sunningdale Agreement.

It was at this election that the Scottish National Party secured their best ever representation inside the House of Commonsmarker: 11 elected MPs as well as their largest total number of votes in a UK general election.


Total number of votes: 29,189,104. All parties shown.
