The constituency of Ealing Central and Acton currently consists of 8 wards including Acton Central, Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common, East Acton, Hanger Hill, South Acton, Southfield and Walpole.

Angie Bray won the newly created seat for the Conservatives in 2010 and held the seat until the following General Election in 2015 when Rupa Huq won the seat for Labour where she remains the incumbent.
Currently the Ealing Central and Acton Conservatives hold 7 of the 28 council seats within the constituency including all the seats in Hanger Hill and Ealing Broadway, along with 1 seat in Ealing Common. The Liberal Democrats hold 4 council seats in the constituency with Labour holding the rest.
