Foreword by the Chair

Dear Labour Party member,

Welcome to Holborn & St. Pancras Constituency Labour Party (CLP). We are an active and vibrant CLP where all members have the opportunity to make a contribution and support the objectives of our party.

2024 is an important year!  We are all working hard to get ready for the campaign for a Labour government that we know will happen sometime before January 2025.

A local party like ours is successful because of the time and effort that our local members contribute to in this joint endeavour; to secure a Labour government and get our MP and leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer into Downing Street.

I would love you to get involved.   There are many ways for you to join in. In normal times you can contribute by coming along to your local branch meeting or our constituency General Meetings to discuss local and national issues; by joining our regular campaigning sessions on the doorstep; or by coming to our social occasions and special events that are put on by the CLP throughout the year.  This year our objective will be to help the national campaign by concentrating our efforts in marginal seats; by canvassing and telephone banking.

To win the upcoming election and deliver a strong Labour government with a mission to improve people’s lives we need members, like you, to get involved and work with us. No help is too little if we want to win. There is a fantastic team of local activists, young and old, new and long-term members, all ready to welcome and engage with you. We really want to hear from you so please do get in touch.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes 

Georgia Kaufmann

A Bit About Us

The constituency of Holborn and St. Pancras parliamentary was re-created in 2023, following the Boundary Commission recommendations, losing two large northern wards to the new Hampstead and Highgate parliamentary seat. Holborn & St. Pancras Constituency Labour Party (CLP) remains one of the largest in the country with around 2,000 members.

Keir Starmer our MP since 2015, has been the Leader of the Opposition since April 2020.  He works closely with Georgia Gould, the Leader of Camden Council since May 2017.

Since the formation of the original seat of Holborn & St. Pancras in 1983 it has been represented by only two Members of Parliament (MP) – both Labour. The late Frank Dobson was MP from 1983-2015 (having previously served as MP for Holborn & St. Pancras South from 1979-1983). When Frank retired the members selected Keir Starmer to represent us. In May 2015 Keir was elected MP with 52.9% of the vote, a majority of 17,048 votes. In June 2017 Keir was re-elected MP with 70.1% of the vote, a majority of 30,509 votes. And in the December 2019 election Keir was again re-elected with 64.5% of the vote, a majority of 27,763.

Orginally created from a merger of Holborn and St. Pancras South and most of St. Pancras North, in 2023 the constituency was reformed losing  two large wards from the northern end, which joined with the new Hampstead and Highgate.  This was to ensure that the constituency size was diminished to meet national standards.

Keir Starmer served as the Shadow Brexit Secretary before becoming the leader of the Labour Party in April 2020, winning on the first ballot.

Each London Borough of Camden ward is represented by two or three councillors. Currently Labour holds 46 out of the 55 seats across the whole Borough.
