York Central is a parliamentary constituency[n 1] which is represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament by Hugh Bayley of the Labour Party and is currently the only constituency in North Yorkshire not represented by Conservatives.[n 2]
After the 2005 general election the parliamentary representation in North Yorkshire was reviewed by the Boundary Commission for England, which recommended the division of the former City of York constituency before the 2010 general election leading to two constituencies within the borders of the city of York - York Central is entirely surrounded by York Outer.
York Central is formed from electoral wards from within the city of York.
- Guildhall (mostly within the walls)
- Hull Road (mostly Layerthorpe)
