Electorate figures are total electorate on the new register, less those becoming 18 during the period of the register (Times Guide October 1974). It seems odd that Returning Officers are not obliged to certify the precise number of electors entitled to vote in an election, as part of the declaration of the result.
Many constituency boundaries were re-drawn. Where the changes were substantial these have been noted. Some constituencies had minor changes that have not been noted.
