List of Parliamentary constituencies in Humberside

Humberside is no longer a county council area, nor is it a ceremonial county, but the constituency boundaries used up to the United Kingdom general election, 2005 were drawn up when it was both. The Boundary Commission for England continues to treat the four unitary authorities of East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire as a single review area in its periodic reviews of constituency arrangements. The area is divided into 10 Parliamentary constituencies – 4 Borough constituencies and 6 County constituencies.

Proposed Revision

The Boundary Commission proposed retaining these 10 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards, and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. These changes were implemented at the United Kingdom general election, 2010.
