The Boundary Commission’s proposals for Islington are unchanged, meaning Jeremy Corbyn’s seat will be abolished.
Islington North will form part of the new Finsbury Park and Stoke Newington constituency - seeing it stretch across Islington and Hackney.
Two wards from the old seat will become part of a new Camden and St Pancras constituency, replacing Holburn and St Pancras.
Meanwhile Emily Thornberry’s Islington South and Finsbury seat will remain intact, and pick up Mildmay ward.
The changes should see the area’s MPs remain in post, if Mr Corbyn is selected for the new Finsbury Park and Stoke Newington seat.

In last year’s election, both of them got thumping majorities. The Labour leader got more than 33,000 than his nearest rival, while the shadow foreign secretary’s was 20,263.
Any boundary proposals would have to be passed by Parliament, with the DUP thought to be unhappy about proposals for Northern Ireland.
