Humberside is no longer a county council area, nor is it a ceremonial county, but the constituency boundaries used up to the 2005 United Kingdom general election were drawn up when it was both.
The Boundary Commission for England curiously continues to treat the four unitary authorities of East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire as a single review area in its periodic reviews of constituency arrangements.
The area is divided into
10 Parliamentary constituencies
– 4 Borough constituencies
and 6 County constituencies.

Boundary changes [ edit ]
The Boundary Commission proposed retaining these
10 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundaries
with the boundaries of current local government wards,
and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies.
These changes were implemented at the
2010 United Kingdom general election.
