North Tyneside is a constituencyrepresented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2010 by Mary Glindon of the Labour Party.
This seat was represented from its creation in 1997 by Stephen Byers of the Labour Party, who before that election represented the abolished seat of Wallsend from 1992.

This constituency forms north-east suburbs to the largest city in the region, Newcastle. At the end of 2010, unemployment still reflected a slightly less strong economy than in the city's shipbuilding heyday and stood in this seat alone at 5.7% by claimant count, compared to a regional average of 5.5%, significantly lower than South Shields' 7.7%. As to the male only claimant total, this amounted to 7.8%, just part of a significant region-wide disparity but significantly lower than Middlesbrough's 12.8%, however both sets of figures were a little higher than the national average — Greater London saw an average of 4.1% and for men a proportion of 4.9%.
