Parliamentary constituencies in North Yorkshire

The Boundary Commission for England recommended that the area continue to be divided into 8 constituencies, but extensively redrawn in the south-eastern part to accommodate exactly two seats in what is now York. These changes were implemented at the United Kingdom general election, 2010.
