Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle is a borough constituency for the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) at least once every five years by the first-past-the-post electoral system. The constituency has been represented by Emma Hardy of the Labour Party since the 2017 general election.
Despite its name, the constituency takes in most of Kingston upon Hull's inner city, a deprived area that is currently undergoing regeneration. The area still has some way to go before it is fully restored to healthy economic life, and unemployment remains high; this has not been helped by the declining fishing industry. Hessle is a quiet suburb to the west, conservative by nature, having little in common with its larger neighbour apart from mostly working class roots.
