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
Surrey was one of them.
When it was created in England in 1979, it consisted of the
Westminster Parliament constituencies of Chertsey and Walton, Dorking, Epsom and Ewell, Esher, Guildford, Reigate, Surrey North West, and Woking. [1 ]
It was split in 1984, with the eastern half merging with
London South as London South and Surrey East and the rest becoming Surrey West.
The constituency was re-created in 1994, consisting of the
Westminster Parliament constituencies of Chertsey and Walton, Esher, Guildford, Mole Valley, North West Surrey, Reigate, and Woking. [2 ]
