Bury South is a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. Since 1997 the MP has been Ivan Lewis of the Labour Party.
1983-2010: The Metropolitan Borough of Bury wards of Besses, Holyrood, Pilkington Park, Radcliffe Central, Radcliffe North, Radcliffe South, St Mary's, and Sedgley.
2010-present: The Metropolitan Borough of Bury wards of Besses, Holyrood, Pilkington Park, Radcliffe East, Radcliffe North, Radcliffe West, St Mary’s, Sedgley, and Unsworth.
The constituency was created in 1983 from parts of the former seats of Middleton and Prestwich & Bury and Radcliffe. It covers the suburban towns of Radcliffe, Whitefield and Prestwich. The name of the seat is somewhat misleading as it does not contain any area of Bury itself, but only towns in the south of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury.
