Vauxhall is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
Since the abolition of the Lambeth Central constituency in 1983, the constituency has included all of Kennington and Stockwell, and the northern parts of Clapham and Brixton and the area commonly known as Vauxhall.
The local government wards in the constituency are currently divided between Labour and Liberal Democrats on Lambeth Council, with a lone Conservative representing Clapham Town ward until losing the seat in the 2006 local elections.

There is a compelling case for the UK at the least to send someone such as Lord Levy to Iraq to discuss security and inclusion, which relate to internal scrutiny.
A debate and a vote on the subject are not constitutionally necessary—there are plenty of precedents to the contrary—or politically essential.

 House of Parliament on Intelligence Agencies
It is important that Parliament and the public should know the clear objectives of the intelligence and security agencies; but it is also right that we should explain to the public that the success of the agencies can be secured only by conditions of secrecy.
A number of our constituents believe that they are under daily surveillance from the security agencies, who are up the chimney, in the garage, or inside the television set.
I think that Parliament also assumes that those Members' instincts, political background and awareness of colleagues' feelings enable them to act decisively in dealing with anything that might be wrong inside that ring, to set boundaries and parameters, and to ensure that money is not being wasted and the job is being done properly.

 Kate Hoey, MP for Vauxhall, has no website: Pledge Success   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
However, in a community such as Vauxhall where issues such as gun-crime and drug addiction are so entwined with unemployment, I wonder why you feel the need to campaign vehemently on behalf of those who are completely removed from your own constituency.
I am acutely aware that your parliamentary voting record does not, in my opinion, reflect the activites of an MP who is working hard to further the interests of her constituents (according to www.theyworkforyou.com you have attended a mere 55% of votes in the last session).
This organisation, I believe, is at odds with your responsibility as the Member of Parliament for Vauxhall which, should you need reminding, is an urban constituency without a hunt or a local shoot.

The UK has decided to keep records of virtually all vehicle movements in the country and retain the data for at least two years.
Parliament is the only meaningful constraint on the Executive and their widespread powers.
The effect is also a partial consequence of Britain’s nonpartisan redistricting system; gerrymandering in the U.S. depresses the number of districts that are likely to “swing” from one party to the other, while the British process tends to produce a larger number of districts close to parity.

The Labour MP, whose Vauxhall constituency is covered by the Metropolitan Police's "softly, softly" cannabis experiment, said the long-term effects of the drug were not known and rolling out the stance across the country would hit the most deprived areas.
The Department for Education and Skills is known to be preparing guidance for teachers on the reclassification of cannabis, which suggests ministers want the change in place by Parliament's summer recess.
But Mr Blunkett was also expected to announce that police will retain the power to arrest cannabis users in certain "aggravated" cases, such as when the drug is smoked outside schools.
