List of Parliamentary constituencies in Herefordshire and Worcestershire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There are 8 Parliamentary constituencies in the ceremonial counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. From 1974 to 1998 the two counties were administratively and ceremonially one, called Hereford and Worcester, and the constituencies crossed the traditional county boundaries. This continued to be the case up to and including the 2005 general election, but since the 2010 general election two constituencies fall entirely within Herefordshire and six within Worcestershire. There are 2 Borough constituencies and 6 County constituencies.
