In 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, the administrative counties of Cumberland and Westmorland were abolished, and were combined with parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire to form the non-metropolitan county of Cumbria.

The administrative and ceremonial county of Cumbria were then divided into six local government districts. There are no unitary authorities in Cumbria.

The first section lists Members of parliament for the old counties of Cumberland and Westmorland, and the second section for the county of Cumbria.
