|Member state||United Kingdom|
Prior to its uniform adoption of proportional representation in 1999, the United Kingdom used first-past-the-post for the European elections in England, Scotland and Wales. The European Parliament constituencies used under that system were smaller than the later regional constituencies and only had one Member of the European Parliament each.
When it was created in Wales in 1979, it consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Brecon and Radnor, Cardigan, Carmarthen, Gower, Llanelli, Pembroke, Swansea East, and Swansea West. In 1984, Cardigan was replaced by Ceredigion and Pembroke North, and Neath was added to the seat. In 1994, Neath and the Swansea seats were replaced by Meirionnydd Nant Conwy and Montgomery.
The seat became part of the much larger Wales constituency in 1999.
