Prior to its uniform adoption of
proportional representation in 1999, the United Kingdom used first-past-the-post for the European elections in England, Scotland and Wales. The European Parliament constituencies used under that system were smaller than the later regional constituencies and only had one Member of the European Parliament each.
The constituency of
Herefordshire and Shropshire was one of them.
It consisted of the
Westminster Parliament constituencies of Hereford, Leominster, Ludlow, North Shropshire, Shrewsbury and Atcham, The Wrekin, and Wyre Forest. [1 ]
David Hallam of Labour was the sole representative for the constituency during its entire existence. His election in 1994 was somewhat of a surprise as the area was widely assumed to be safely Conservative.
