    Hornchurch

    Hornchurch

    Hornchurch was a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. At the 2010 general election parts formed the new seats of Hornchurch and Upminster; and Dagenham and Rainham. The seat encompassed Hornchurch, Rainham, Elm Park and the village of Wennington. It bordered on the other London constituencies of Romford and Upminster and like them, was part of the London Borough of Havering. The south of the constituency has been seen as a site for building large entertainment centres on Rainham's large marshland area, and was viewed as a potential site for the European Disneyland project, although it was considered much less suitable than the current position near Paris. There have been plans to build a casino but permission is yet to be granted. Hornchurch is a predominantly suburban and Conservative-voting area, but the seat is seen as a swing seat due to Rainham and Elm Park's working class voters and because the wealthiest Emerson Park area of Hornchurch does not form part of the constituency, instead forming part of Upminster constituency.

    South East Essex

    South East Essex

    South East Essex (in its first incarnation formally the South Eastern division of Essex) was a parliamentary constituency in Essex in the East of England. It returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The constituency was created for the 1885 general election, and abolished for the 1950 general election. The constituency was re-established for the 1955 general election, and abolished again for the 1983 general election. South East Essex originally comprised a large area including modern day Thurrock district, Castle Point district, Rochford, Southend-on-Sea and the Winstree hundred. However, as the population of the area grew, so did its parliamentary representation. In 1918, a reformed constituency lost the Winstree hundred and Southend-on-Sea (except Shoeburyness), and gained Billericay. In 1945, Shoeburyness was handed over to Southend East while Thurrock gained its own representation.

    Carleton—Mississippi Mills

    Carleton—Mississippi Mills

    Carleton—Mississippi Mills (formerly known as Lanark—Carleton and Carleton—Lanark) is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1988. This riding was created in 1987 from parts of Lanark–Renfrew–Carleton and Nepean–Carleton ridings. At first, it was named "Carleton–Lanark". The name was changed to the current name as of September 1, 2004. The riding consists of the former Townships of Ramsay and Pakenham in the Town of Mississippi Mills, the former Townships of Goulbourn and West Carleton, and the former city of Kanata all in the city of Ottawa. Initially, the boundaries of the riding were contentious. According to a report of the House of Commons committee that reviewed all new riding boundaries created in that year’s redistribution of ridings, “the Township of Mississippi Mills has strenuously protested being placed within Carleton–Lanark. It feels it does not belong to, and should not be attached to, an Ottawa-focused riding.” In May 2004, Mississippi Mills town council voted to be moved out of the riding and into the same riding as the rest of Lanark County. Over 1,000 residents of the township mailed

Stourbridge is one of four constituencies covering the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley, covering the south-west of the borough.

The current Stourbridge constituency was formed in 1997, taking in a large part of the former Halesowen and Stourbridge constituency (the remainder forming part of Halesowen and Rowley Regis). Halesowen and Stourbridge had been held by the Conservatives, but both of its replacements were taken by Labour in 1997. Labour retained the seat by a comfortable margin at the general election in 2001, and retained it again in 2005 though by a reduced majority. The Tories regained the seat at the 2010 election with Margot James becoming the first Tory MP of the re-established constituency.

    Regent's Park and Kensington North

    Regent's Park and Kensington North

    Regent's Park and Kensington North was a constituency in Central London and west London represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency was created in 1997 from parts of the former seats of Westminster North & Kensington. It was abolished at the 2010 general election. With its stark contrasts between prosperity and deprivation, the constituency should have been highly competitive marginal between the Conservative Party and Labour Party in an even year, although for the three general elections of its existence it was won firmly by Labour. Before its creation it was considered a constituency likely to produce low swings which would be won on differential turnout, similar to its predecessor seats. However, in the political climate of the late 1990s and early 2000s this proved not to be the case. The constituency covered the areas of St John's Wood, Maida Vale, the Harrow Road, Westbourne Green, Maida Hill, Little Venice, parts of Queen's Park, parts of Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill as well as North Kensington.

The district includes one of the longest stretches of coastline, from Santa Cruz to just into Santa Barbara County. The district has a relatively small minority population due to the division of Monterey County. The 15th includes all or portions of five counties, with no one county contributing more than a quarter of the district's population. San Luis Obispo County is entirely in the district, along with the city of Santa Maria in Santa Barbara County. State Route 1 connects San Luis Obispo with Monterey County.

    St George's

    St George's

    St George was a parliamentary constituency in what is now the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was part of the Parliamentary borough of Tower Hamlets and returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The constituency, formally known as Tower Hamlets, St George Division, was created by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 by the division of the existing two-member parliamentary borough of Tower Hamlets into seven divisions, each returning one MP. This was an area on the north bank of the River Thames, with a lot of its inhabitants employed as dock workers or in the sugar refining industry. Pelling comments that it had the largest proportion of immigrant Irishmen in the metropolis. The constituency was marginal between the Conservative and Liberal parties. Pelling suggests the Conservative MP, elected in 1885, owed his victory to generosity "bordering on corruption". Political issues important in the area were protectionism (as sugar refining was damaged by foreign subsidies to rivals) and the immigration of "pauper aliens" (the neighbouring division of Whitechapel had a large population of immigrant Jews).

    Bolsover

    Bolsover is a county constituency in Derbyshire represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election. The constituency was first contested in 1950. This is a safe Labour seat. Since 1970 it has been held by Dennis Skinner, a former miner whose often abrasive manner in the House of Commons has led to him being dubbed "The Beast of Bolsover". The constituency was created in 1950 from parts of North East Derbyshire and Clay Cross constituencies. When it was first formed it comprised the Urban District of Bolsover and the Rural Districts of Blackwell and Clowne. Bolsover and Clowne had both previously been included in the North-Eastern Division of Derbyshire, while Blackwell had formed part of the Clay Cross Division. In 1974 the Local Government District of Bolsover was formed with identical boundaries to the constituency. These boundaries remained unchanged until 1983 when the Morton, Pilsley, Shirland and Sutton wards of the District of North East Derbyshire were transferred from the North East Derbyshire constituency.

    City of London

    The City of London was a United Kingdom Parliamentary constituency. It was a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of England then of the Parliament of Great Britain from 1707 to 1800 and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 to 1950. This borough constituency consisted of the City of London, which is the historic core of the modern Greater London. The southern boundary of the City is the north bank of the River Thames. The City of Westminster is situated to the west. The districts of Holborn and Finsbury are to the north, Shoreditch to the north-east and Whitechapel to the east. London is first known to have been enfranchised and represented in Parliament in 1298. Because it was the most important city in England it received four seats in Parliament instead of the normal two for a constituency. Previous to 1298 the area would have been represented as part of the county constituency of Middlesex. The City formed part of the geographic county, even though from early times it was not administered as part of Middlesex. The City was represented by four MPs until 1885 and two thereafter until 1950. The City of London was originally a densely populated area.

    Alabama (/ˌæləˈbæmə/) is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west. Alabama is the 30th-most extensive and the 23rd-most populous of the 50 United States. At 1,300 miles (2,100 km), Alabama has one of the longest navigable inland waterways in the nation. From the American Civil War until World War II, Alabama, like many Southern states, suffered economic hardship, in part because of continued dependence on agriculture. Despite the growth of major industries and urban centers, white rural interests dominated the state legislature until the 1960s, while urban interests and African Americans were under-represented. Following World War II, Alabama experienced growth as the economy of the state transitioned from one primarily based on agriculture to one with diversified interests. The establishment or expansion of multiple United States Armed Forces installations added to the state economy and helped bridge the gap between an agricultural and industrial economy during the mid-20th century.

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency is located in Surrey, bordering with Greater London. It is centered on the town of Reigate from which it takes its name. The Boundary Commission boundary review prior to the 2010 general election moved the Preston ward from Epsom and Ewell into the Reigate constituency to increase the population of the seat which was the smallest in Surrey. At the public consultation stage of the boundary review there were a number of petitions for the constituency to be renamed Reigate and Banstead to bring it in line with the district, including ones from both the local MP and the borough council. However, the review rejected these petitions since it felt that that constituencies should be renamed only when they had undergone substantial boundary changes that render the existing name implausible, that the constituency contains only 70% of the district, that the seat is centred on Reigate but Banstead is in the extreme northeast corner, that other towns such as Redhill might have

    Hellerau is a quarter (Stadtteil) in the City of Dresden, Germany. It was the first garden city in Germany. Based on the ideas of Ebenezer Howard, businessman Karl Schmidt-Hellerau founded Hellerau near Dresden in 1909. The idea was to create an organic, planned community. Several well-known architects participated in its construction, including Richard Riemerschmid, Heinrich Tessenow, Hermann Muthesius, Kurt Frick, Georg Metzendorf, Wilhelm Kreis and Bruno Paul. Hellerau attracted cultural visionaries from all over Europe. Among them were Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, composer, and Gret Palucca and Mary Wigman, choreographers. Until the start of World War I, annual festivals attracted further members of the progressive elite of the time. In 1921, educator A. S. Neill founded his Summerhill School here. With the establishment of the National Socialist government in Germany in 1933, the progressive community at Hellerau ended.

    Taunton was a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom and its predecessors from 1295 to 2010, taking its name from the town of Taunton in Somerset. Until 1918, it was a parliamentary borough, electing two Members of Parliament (MPs) between 1295 and 1885 and one from 1885 to 1918; the name was then transferred to a county constituency, electing one MP. In the boundary changes that came into effect at the general election of 2010, the Boundary Commission for England replaced Taunton with a modified constituency called Taunton Deane, to reflect the district name. Taunton borough (to 1918): The borough consisted of the town of Taunton, Somerset. Until 1832, it retained the medieval boundaries, which included only part of the parish of St Mary Magdalene, Taunton, but the boundary act extended it to take in more of the town, including parts of Taunton St James, Wilton, West Monkton and Bishop's Hull parishes, which more than doubled its population.

    Delaware (/ˈdɛləwɛər/ DEL-ə-wair) is a U.S. state located on the Atlantic Coast in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. It is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, to the northeast by New Jersey, and to the north by Pennsylvania. The state takes its name from Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, an English nobleman and Virginia's first colonial governor, after whom what is now called Cape Henlopen was originally named. Delaware is located in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and is the second least extensive, the sixth least populous, but the sixth most densely populated of the 50 United States. Delaware is divided into three counties. From north to south, these three counties are New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. While the southern two counties have historically been predominantly agricultural, New Castle County has been more industrialized. The history of the state's economic and industrial development is closely tied to the impact of the Du Pont family, founders and scions of E.

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The seat takes in Lewisham's northern tip - a short stretch alongside the river Thames - along with the Deptford and New Cross areas, and the centre of Lewisham itself. These are historically some of the more deprived in London with high crime rates and social problems, though some more upmarket housing developments are springing up as former industrial sites are cleared away as part of an ongoing rejuvenation process. The area is relatively affordable, given the short commuting distance to both central London and Canary Wharf, via the Docklands Light Railway. Goldsmiths, University of London is within the seat and there is a substantial student population here. Lewisham Deptford has been one of Labour's safest London seats for many years - it was the party's 25th safest in the entire country at the 2001 election - though social change in the last decade has seen things become a little more competitive, with an active Liberal Democrat party in the area.

    Torridge and West Devon is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It returns one Member of Parliament (MP), elected by the first-past-the-post voting system. Prior to the 2010 general election, the constituency covered the entirety of the two districts from which it takes its name, Torridge and West Devon (apart from one West Devon ward). However, following a review of parliamentary representation in Devon by the Boundary Commission for England, which has increased the number of seats in the county from 11 to 12, the town of Okehampton and the area surrounding it have been transferred to the new Central Devon seat. The main towns within the constituency are now Bideford, Great Torrington, Holsworthy and Tavistock; the constituency also includes the island of Lundy. As part of the Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies which commenced in 2011, the Boundary Commission for England propose creating a cross-border Cornwall/Devon seat which would take over half the current electorate of Torridge and West Devon.

    Division of Bennelong

    Division of Bennelong

    The Division of Bennelong is an Australian electorate in New South Wales. The division was created in 1949 and is named for Bennelong, an Aboriginal man befriended by the first Governor of New South Wales, Arthur Phillip. Bennelong is based in Northern Sydney, including the suburbs of Eastwood, Carlingford, Epping and Ryde, and was held by the Liberal Party from its creation until its swing to Labor in the 2007 election. The Liberal Party regained the seat at the 2010 election. When the Division of Bennelong was created in 1949, it covered mainly the suburbs of Ryde, Hunters Hill and Lane Cove, all of which were (and still are) relatively affluent areas, and as such it has historically been a "safe" Liberal seat. Over the years Bennelong has evolved into a marginal seat, and this has been attributed to two factors. Firstly, the electoral boundary of Bennelong has been redrawn ("redistributed") numerous times, to exclude the wealthy Lane Cove and Hunters Hill in the East, and to incorporate Eastwood, Epping, Carlingford and working class Ermington in the North and West. Secondly, the demographic has changed as well: since the early 1990s, Eastwood and surrounding suburbs have seen

The constituency was created for the 1997 general election. Minor boundary changes occurred for the 2010 general election, and the constituency was renamed Bermondsey and Old Southwark. As the name suggests, the seat incorporated large parts of the old Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey and Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, within the modern London Borough of Southwark (which is much larger than historic Southwark). The seat was created in 1997 and was primarily the successor seat to the old Southwark & Bermondsey constituency which existed from 1983 until 1997. Before that the core of the seat was the Bermondsey constituency in which incarnation a notorious by-election took place in 1983. For the 2010 United Kingdom general election it was replaced by a renamed but barely altered Bermondsey and Old Southwark.

Boston and Skegness is bordered by the constituencies of Louth and Horncastle to the north, Sleaford and North Hykeham to the west, and South Holland and The Deepings to the south. The constituency boundaries changed at the 2010 general election, bringing in the two rural wards of Stickey and Croft from Louth and Horncastle. The constituency was created in 1997 from parts of the former seats of Holland with Boston and East Lindsey. Parts of the more rural south were separated from Holland with Boston to create South Holland and The Deepings. It is a safe seat for the Conservative Party. Despite this its first MP, Richard Body, only held the seat at the 1997 general election with a wafer-thin majority, attributed in part to his own personal popularity. This was due to him having previously been the MP for Holland with Boston from 1966 to 1997. After retiring from Parliament Body left the Conservatives and joined the UK Independence Party.

It covers the city of Kingston, Ontario and the nearby areas, including the sparsely populated Frontenac Islands in the St. Lawrence River. It has been represented since the 2011 federal election by Ted Hsu. The riding was created in 1966 from Kingston and parts of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington and Prince Edward—Lennox. In 1966, it was defined to consist of the City of Kingston, the Townships of Howe Island, Kingston and Wolfe Island, and the southwest part of the Township of Pittsburg, in the County of Frontenac; and the Township of Armherst Island in the County of Lennox and Addington. In 1996, the Township of Pittsburgh portion of the riding was redefined to consist of the part of the township lying to the south of Highway 401. In 2003, it was redefined to consist of the Township of Frontenac Islands and the City of Kingston in the County of Frontenac. This riding has elected the following Members of Parliament:

    Maldon and East Chelmsford

    Maldon and East Chelmsford

    Maldon and East Chelmsford was a parliamentary constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. From 1997 to 2010 it elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. It included the whole of the Maldon District Council area and part of the Borough of Chelmsford Council area. Danbury and Great Baddow are villages in the East Chelmsford part of the constituency. Following their review into parliamentary representation in Essex, the Boundary Commission for England abolished the Maldon and East Chelmsford constituency. The wards currently which made up this constituency were divided between a new Maldon constituency; a new Witham constituency; and a re-created Chelmsford constituency. For the first time, the Maldon District was split between constituencies.

    Mole Valley

    Mole Valley is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency covers much the same area as that covered by the Mole Valley district in Surrey, though it includes five wards in the east of the Borough of Guildford. The largest town in the constituency is Dorking, and the constituency also contains the town of Leatherhead, as well as many rural and satellite villages. Mole Valley underwent minor boundary changes before the 2010 general election to match local government ward boundaries, but these moved no voters. The constituency was created in 1983; much of the same area was covered by the Dorking constituency which preceded it. It is a safe Conservative seat, and has a reputation as being one of the safest places to live in Britain, with its affluent middle-class commuter towns and villages for the vast London metropolis, returning a Tory with over a 10,000 majority even in the 1997 Labour landslide. This constituency underwent boundary changes between the 1992 and 1997 general elections and thus change in share of vote is based

    California's 39th State Senate District is one of 40 Senate Districts. It is currently represented by Democrat Christine Kehoe of San Diego. The 39th District, located entirely in San Diego County, is essentially an urban San Diego seat. The district includes most of the urban and inner suburban areas with significant Non-Hispanic White, Asian, and African-American populations. The 39th District's southern end is downtown San Diego, and it stretches northward to Del Mar and eastward to Lemon Grove. Parts of Casa de Oro-Mount Helix, La Presa, and Spring Valley are also in the district. However, 90% of the district's population is in the city of San Diego itself. Indeed, of San Diego's eight administrative regions, all of the Western and Northern Districts are in the 39th, including such neighborhoods as Old Town, Hillcrest, North Park, Point Loma, Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, Linda Vista, Mission Valley, Mission Beach, Mission Bay, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach, and University Heights. The 2001 redistricting made the 39th Senate District a fairly safe Democratic district. As of 2006, 39.8% of registered voters were Democrats and 31.4% Republicans. However, most of the Decline to

    Hemsworth

    Hemsworth

    Hemsworth is a parliamentary constituency in West Yorkshire, represented in the House of Commons. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency comprises former coal mining towns and villages and has consistently elected Labour MPs with large majorities for generations. At the February 1974 general election, Hemsworth was the safest seat for any party, anywhere in the UK: the Labour vote peaked in 1966 at 85.39%, and consistently exceeded 80% from 1935 until the Liberal Party contested the seat in October 1974, for the first time since 1923. Successive boundary changes (the removal of a large number of mining communities to the new Barnsley East constituency in 1983 and the addition of the most middle class part of Wakefield in 1997) have reduced Labour's dominance, but the constituency remains a stronghold. This constituency covers the towns of Hemsworth, Featherstone, South Kirkby & Moorthorpe and South Elmsall plus the southern part of Wakefield (Sandal, Agbrigg, Belle Vue) and the villages of Ackworth, Crofton, Upton, Sharlston, Walton and Notton. These settlements are all in the City of Wakefield district in West

    Norwood was a parliamentary constituency in South London which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom by the first past the post system. The constituency existed from 1885 until it was abolished for the 1997 general election. It was held by the Conservative Party for the first 60 years of its existence. It then oscillated between the Conservatives and Labour until 1966, from which point it was held by Labour until its abolition. At the time of abolition in 1997, Norwood formed the south-eastern part of the London Borough of Lambeth, and consisted of the following electoral wards from the borough: Angell, Gypsy Hill, Herne Hill, Knight's Hill, St Martin’s, Thurlow Park, and Tulse Hill. In 1997, constituents were divided between the newly created cross-borough (Lambeth & Southwark) seat of Dulwich and West Norwood to the east, Streatham to the west and Vauxhall to the north.

    Beckenham is a parliamentary constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The northernmost third of the constituency, around Penge and Crystal Palace, can be categorised as being similar in character to neighbouring Lewisham and north Croydon, having an inner-city feel about it and many ethnic minority residents. This part of the constituency votes strongly for the Liberal Democrats, with Labour also competitive. The remaining two thirds of the constituency consists of leafy Bromley suburbia, also taking in the town of Beckenham itself. This area votes 60-70% for the Conservatives and is the reason why the constituency has been safely Conservative even in disastrous years for the party such as 1997 and 2001. The addition, from the Bromley and Chislehurst seat, of Bromley Common and Keston ward, as well as that part of Hayes & Coney Hall ward that lay outside the constituency before the boundary review, and the removal of the Penge and Cator, Clockhouse and Crystal Palace wards, were predicted to make Beckenham the safest Conservative seat in the

The town currently elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. It has elected Labour MPs since its re-creation in 1955. The constituency encompasses the town of Blackburn in the North West of England. It borders four other constituencies: Ribble Valley to the north, Hyndburn to the east, Rossendale and Darwen to the south and Chorley to the west. Following the review of parliamentary representation in Lancashire, including the unitary authority of Blackburn with Darwen in the run-up to the United Kingdom general election, 2010 the Boundary Commission for England made minor boundary changes to the existing constituency. The electoral wards in the Blackburn seat fought at the UK general election in 2010 were entirely within the district of Blackburn with Darwen. As part of the nation-wide Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies the Boundary Commission for England has proposed a minor change to the existing Blackburn constituency, namely the addition of the Fernhurst electoral ward.

    Paddington North

    Paddington North

    Paddington North was a borough constituency in the Metropolitan Borough of Paddington in London which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, elected by the first past the post voting system. It was created in 1885, and abolished for the February 1974 general election. It was a compact and mixed residential area which included some grand mansion blocks of flats, large runs of typical London terraced houses, and some areas of working class housing. The area moved slowly down the social scale during its existence and the construction of large amounts of social housing following the Second World War made what had been a Conservative-inclined marginal seat into a reasonably safe Labour one. The constituency was originally made up by the northern part of Paddington Parish. In the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 it was defined as the number 2 ward of the Parish. Although Paddington had four wards, they had been drawn up thirty years before and the number 2 ward had by the mid-1880s the majority of the electorate of the parish. In the boundary changes in 1918, the constituency was refashioned as the northern part of the

Following the review of parliamentary representation in West Yorkshire, the Boundary Commission for England revised the boundary of the Wakefield constituency, removing all the areas from Kirklees and adding wards from the abolished Normanton constituency. At the 2010 General Election the Wakefield parliamentary constituency covered three-quarters of the West Yorkshire city of Wakefield and a number of villages to the west and south-west of the city. The constituency is made up of six electoral wards of the City of Wakefield: Horbury and South Ossett; Ossett; Wakefield East; Wakefield North; Wakefield Rural; and Wakefield West. Wakefield has returned Labour MPs since 1932 and for many years has been considered a safe Labour seat, but as of the 2010 general election is somewhat more marginal.

    Woodford was a parliamentary constituency in Essex which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1945 until it was renamed for the 1964 general election. The new Wanstead and Woodford constituency was subject to minor boundary changes reflecting alterations to the Municipal Borough of Wanstead and Woodford since the last general redistribution of parliamentary seats in 1955. The pre and post 1964 seats comprised the whole municipal borough, within its 1955 and 1964 boundaries respectively. The constituency's only Member of Parliament for its entire existence was Sir Winston Churchill of the Conservative Party. He represented the seat during his second term as Prime Minister, and continued to hold it until he retired aged 89 at the 1964 general election; it was the last seat he represented in a parliamentary career that spanned over 60 years. He was the Father of the House for the last five years of his tenure in the seat. 1951 Winston S.

    Edinburgh South is a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, first used in the general election of 1885. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The current MP is the Labour Party's Ian Murray who was first elected at the 2010 general election with a majority of just 316 votes. Prior to the 2005 general election the constituency had the same boundaries as the Scottish Parliament constituency with the same name. When created in 1885, the Westminster constituency was partly a replacement for the Edinburgh constituency. The Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 provided that the constituency was to consist of the Municipal Wards of St. George, St. Cuthbert, and Newington. In 1918 the constituency consisted of the "Merchiston, Morningside, and Newington Municipal Wards of Edinburgh." In 2005, prior to the general election, Edinburgh South was one of six covering the City of Edinburgh council area. Five were entirely within the city council area.

    South Norfolk is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. From 1868 until 1885 it returned two members but thereafter elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. Following the Reform Act 1832 the historic county of Norfolk was split into two, two member, county divisions - East Norfolk and West Norfolk. The Reform Act 1867 provided for the county to be redistributed into three, two member, county divisions. The three divisions, used for the United Kingdom general election, 1868 were this one, North Norfolk and West Norfolk. The Southern division had its place of election (where the hustings stood, at which nominations were made, votes cast before the introduction of multiple polling districts in county constituencies and the result was declared) at Norwich. This was the same place of election as the former Eastern division. In 1868 the same two MPs who had sat for East Norfolk before the dissolution were re-elected from this constituency.

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election. The constituency was created in 1997 by merging Caithness and Sutherland with an area from Ross, Cromarty and Skye. The rest of Ross, Cromarty and Skye was merged into another new constituency, Ross, Skye and Inverness West. In 1999 a Scottish Parliament (Holyrood) constituency was created with the name and boundaries of the Westminster constituency. In 2005 the Westminster constituency was enlarged slightly, to include a small area from Ross, Skye and Inverness West. The rest of the latter was divided between two new constituencies, Ross, Skye and Lochaber and Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey. For representation at Holyrood, therefore, the area of the Westminster constituency is now divided between two constituencies, Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross (the Holyrood constituency) and Ross, Skye and Inverness West (the Holyrood constituency).

It was established in 1295 to return two Members of Parliament to the House of Commons but in 1885 representation was reduced to one member under the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885. It now elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election. In recent years Gloucester has been a marginal constituency between Labour and the Conservatives. After nearly three decades as a Conservative seat, it was held by Labour from 1997 to 2010 before returning to the Conservatives, electing Richard Graham as MP on a swing of 8.9%. The constituency consists of the following electoral wards from the City of Gloucester: Abbey, Barnwood, Barton and Tredworth, Elmbridge, Grange, Hucclecote, Kingsholm and Wotton, Matson and Robinswood, Moreland, Podsmead, Quedgeley Fieldcourt, Quedgeley Severn Vale, Tuffley, Westgate.

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election. At 727 hectares (1,800 acres), it is the smallest UK Parliamentary constituency by area. Since 1983 the MP has been Jeremy Corbyn of the Labour Party. The seat covers the northern half of the London Borough of Islington, which includes the areas of Holloway, Highbury, Tufnell Park and Archway. The constituency now comprises eight wards: Finsbury Park, Highbury East, Highbury West, Hillrise, Junction, Mildmay, St. George's and Tollington. These boundaries have been considerably changed since 1970, when Islington returned three MPs and shared another with Hackney. This reflects the depopulation of central London as people move to the suburbs and the local authority sought to obtain lower housing densities. The core of the constituency was the area north of Seven Sisters Road and Camden Road. Michael O'Halloran, elected Labour MP for Islington North in 1969, was the subject of an investigation in the early 1970s by The Sunday Times newspaper. They highlighted his background

    Edinburgh North and Leith

    Edinburgh North and Leith

    Edinburgh North and Leith is a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (at Westminster), first used in the 1997 general election. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. In 1999, a Scottish Parliament constituency was created with the same name and boundaries. See Edinburgh North and Leith (Scottish Parliament constituency). The boundaries of the Westminster constituency were altered, however, in 2005, and the Scottish Parliament constituency retains the older boundaries. When created in 1997, Edinburgh North and Leith was largely a replacement for the Edinburgh Leith constituency, and was one of six constituencies covering the City of Edinburgh council area. One of those six, Edinburgh East and Musselburgh straddled the boundary with the East Lothian council area to take in Musselburgh. In terms of wards used in elections to the City of Edinburgh Council between 1995 and 2007, the constituency included the wards of Broughton, Calton, Granton, Harbour, Lorne, New Town, Newhaven, Pilton, Stockbridge and Trinity. Constituency boundaries in Scotland were revised for the 2005 election. The number of

When the Florida legislature redistricted in 2002 after the 2000 U.S. Census, a federal court described the boundaries of the 16th Congressional District and the interlocking 23rd Congressional District as an example of gerrymandering and a "raw exercise of majority legislative power."

    Manchester, Blackley was a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. In boundary changes for the 2010 general election it was replaced by Blackley and Broughton. This constituency was one of Labour's safest seats, though prior to 1964 it was regarded as a reasonably safe Conservative seat, with the party only gaining the seat once, in their 1945 landslide victory. Located in the North of the city, it included the overspill area of Blackley, the deprived inner-city area of Harpurhey, and the districts of Moston, Crumpsall and Charlestown. Following its review of parliamentary representation in Greater Manchester, the Boundary Commission for England recommended modifications to the existing Manchester Blackley constituency. From 2010 this seat was abolished, and its constituents form one part of the Blackley and Broughton seat with two electoral wards from Salford.

    • Elections: Arkansas United States Senate election, 2008
    Arkansas (/ˈɑrkənsɔː/ AR-kən-saw) is a state located in the Southern region of the United States. Its name is an Algonquian name of the Quapaw Indians. The state's diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Arkansas is the 29th most extensive and the 32nd most populous of the 50 United States. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state. The Territory of Arkansas was admitted to the union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836. The name “Arkansas” derives from the same root as the name for the state of Kansas. The Kansa tribe of Native Americans are closely associated with the Sioux tribes of the Great Plains. The word “Arkansas” itself is a French pronunciation (“Arcansas”) of a Quapaw (a related “Kaw” tribe) word, akakaze, meaning “land of downriver people” or the Sioux word akakaze meaning “people of the south wind”. The pronunciation of Arkansas was made official by an act of the state legislature in 1881, after a dispute between two U.S. Senators from Arkansas.

    Scarborough and Whitby is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency name has had two separate periods of existence. A Scarborough and Whitby division of the North Riding of Yorkshire was created by the Boundary Commission of 1917 and first elected a Member of Parliament in the 1918 general election. This division took the entirety of the abolished Parliamentary borough of Scarborough, together with the majority of the previous Whitby division and a very small part of Cleveland division: the parishes of Westerdale and Commondale. It had a population, in the middle of 1914, of 72,979. The Boundary Commission had initially recommended that the division simply be called 'Scarborough' but an amendment moved by the Government during enactment of their recommendations changed it to Scarborough and Whitby. The Initial Report of the Boundary Commission for England in 1947 made minor changes to the constituency, in line with local government changes which had abolished Guisborough Rural District in 1932 and absorbed it into Whitby

    Silvertown was a borough constituency returning a single Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom through the first-past-the-post voting system. The constituency was one of four divisions of the Parliamentary Borough of West Ham, which had at the time the same boundaries as the County Borough of West Ham. Although administratively separate since 1889, the area was formally part of the county of Essex; since 1965 it has been part of the London Borough of Newham in Greater London. The creation of the constituency was recommended by the Boundary Commission in a report issued in 1917, and formally created by the Representation of the People Act 1918. It came into existence at the 1918 general election. As the borough of West Ham had only 120,586 electors on 15 October 1946, the relevant date for the subsequent Boundary Commission review, the borough was only entitled to two Members of Parliament; North and South divisions were recommended. As a consequence Silvertown was abolished as a separate constituency by the Representation of the People Act 1948 and went out of existence at the 1950 general election. Silvertown was based on the two

The United States Census Bureau estimates that the population of Colorado was 5,116,796 on July 1, 2011, an increase of +1.74% since the 2010 United States Census. The state was named for the Colorado River, which early Spanish explorers named the Río Colorado for the red colored (Spanish: colorado) silt the river carried from the mountains. On August 1, 1876, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting Colorado as the 38th state. Colorado is nicknamed the "Centennial State" because it was admitted to the Union in 1876, the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence. Colorado is bordered by the northwest state of Wyoming to the north, the midwest states of Nebraska and Kansas to the northeast and east, on the south by New Mexico a small

The seat of South Ribble was created for the 1983 general election, following the local government changes in the 1970s which saw the creation of a South Ribble borough council. Former Preston North MP Robert Atkins won the South Ribble constituency in 1983 and fought the seat in every election up to the 1997 general election, when Labour's David Borrow gained the seat with nearly 26,000 votes. This figure is 2,000 less than Robert Atkins' victory in 1983. From the 1997 "landslide year" until 2010, David Borrow's vote total and majority consistently shrunk with a swing back to the Conservatives at every election: despite in 2005, UKIP nominating a candidate for the first time, and taking just over 1,200 votes. Borrow finally lost South Ribble in 2010 on a large swing to the Conservatives to the current Member of Parliament, Lorraine Fullbrook.

The land went through several administrative changes before becoming an organized (or incorporated) territory on May 11, 1912, and the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959. The name "Alaska" (Аляска) was already introduced in the Russian colonial period, when it was used only for the peninsula and is derived from the Aleut alaxsxaq, meaning "the mainland" or, more literally, "the object towards which the action of the sea is directed". It is also known as Alyeska, the "great land", an Aleut word derived from the same

    Missouri's 3rd congressional district

    Missouri's third congressional district is in the eastern portion of the state. It includes much of southern St Louis City, much of southern St Louis County, and all of Jefferson County and St Genevieve County. Its current representative is Democrat Russ Carnahan, who was elected in 2004. Previously the seat had been held by Dick Gephardt, who represented the district for over 20 years before his retirement. Following dramatic drop in population of St. Louis in the 2010 United States Census, Missouri will lose a Congressional Seat effective in 2013. Initial maps indicate that the 3rd district will be dismantled. The 3rd's home base in St. Louis would be absorbed by Missouri's 1st congressional district. Much of the district outside the St. Louis area will be drawn into the 8th district. Meanwhile, the new 3rd will include most of the territory currently in the 9th district, which is the district officially set to be dissolved.

    Saarland

    Saarland

    The Saarland (German: das Saarland – German pronunciation: [das ˈzaːɐlant]) is one of Germany's sixteen federal states (Bundesländer). With its capital at Saarbrücken, it has an area of 2,570 km² and (as of 30 April 2012) 1,012,000 inhabitants. In terms of both area and population size it is – apart from the city-states of Berlin, Bremen and Hamburg – Germany's smallest federal state. The wealth of its coal deposits and their large-scale industrial exploitation, coupled with its location on the border between France and Germany, have given the Saarland a unique history in modern times. Prior to its creation as the Territory of the Saar Basin by the League of Nations after World War I, the Saarland (or simply "the Saar", as is frequently referred to) did not exist as a unified entity. Until then, some parts of it had been Prussian while others belonged to Bavaria. The inhabitants voted to rejoin Germany in a plebiscite held in 1935. From 1947 to 1956 the Saarland was a French-occupied territory (the "Saar Protectorate") separate from the rest of Germany. Between 1950 and 1956, Saarland was a member of the Council of Europe. In 1955, in another plebiscite, the inhabitants were

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The constituency is based around the town of Eastleigh in Hampshire, sharing similar borders as the borough of Eastleigh. Eastleigh was a fairly safe seat for the Conservatives for nearly forty years until the death of its then MP, former journalist Stephen Milligan, in 1994. At the subsequent by-election, the Liberal Democrats gained the seat on a very large swing, and have since held Eastleigh in the four following General Elections, though with somewhat narrow majorities. The current MP, Chris Huhne, has gained national attention first as environment spokesman, then as Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, having previously stood unsuccessfully as a candidate for party leader in 2006 against Sir Menzies Campbell and again in 2007 against Nick Clegg. Following the 2010 general election, Huhne joined the coalition government's cabinet as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, but resigned in February 2012 after being charged with perverting the course of justice over a

    Sheffield, Brightside was a parliamentary constituency in the City of Sheffield.

In its first fifty years, Brightside returned a variety of Liberal, Conservative and Labour MPs. However, from 1945 onwards, it became one of the Labour Party's safest seats in the United Kingdom. It was represented by David Blunkett from 1987 until its abolition. Sheffield Brightside covers the north of the city and includes the wards of Firth Park, Shiregreen and Brightside, and Southey, it also includes the northern part of Burngreave ward and small parts of Hillsborough and Walkley wards.

    Stone is a county constituency in Staffordshire which is represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. While an earlier constituency of the same name existed until 1950, the current constituency was created for the 1997 general election, when Staffordshire was awarded an additional seat by the Boundary Commission. The constituency was formed from parts of the Stafford, Staffordshire Moorlands and Mid Staffordshire constituencies. Although regarded as a safe seat, its creation reduced the Conservative majority in the Staffordshire Moorlands and Stafford constituencies, both of which were gained by Labour at the 1997 General Election. Stone is one of the largest geographically in England. It covers the area from Madeley in the north to the west of Newcastle-under-Lyme. It then runs south and out to the outskirts of Market Drayton, running down to the northern edge of Newport.

    Tynemouth

    Tynemouth is a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) using the first past the post voting system. During Sir Neville Trotter's period as MP, the constituency did not include the Shiremoor and Backworth ward of 'Valley', instead including the Percy Main ward of 'Riverside'. This effectively meant the constituency stretched only as far north as Whitley Bay and Earsdon, while extending quite far along the north bank of the Tyne, touching the edge of Wallsend. The A19 road acted as a natural in-land boundary in all instances. Since the May 2010 general election, however, the following wards comprise the Tynemouth Parliamentary constituency: An interesting Tyneside seat due mostly to its historical marginality, the constituency covers Tynemouth, North Shields, Whitley Bay, Cullercoats, Monkseaton, and since 2010 Shiremoor and Backworth. The seat has historically shown the highest level of support for the Conservative Party in the Tyne and Wear area, with the Conservatives holding the seat from 1950 until 1997 (though almost never with large majorities).

    North West Leicestershire is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election. North West Leicestershire constituency was created in 1983 from parts of the seats of Bosworth and Loughborough. It covers the same area as the North West Leicestershire district in the East Midlands. A key marginal seat with the main population centres being Coalville and Ashby-de-la-Zouch, it is divided between Labour-voting former mining areas, and Conservative-inclined rural villages. The seat has been something of a bellwether, represented by the governing party in every election since its creation and is typical of many 'middle England' seats that fell to Labour in 1997 and were won back by the Conservatives in 2010. In the Adrian Mole diaries by Sue Townsend an 'Ashby-de-la-Zouch' seat is won by Pandora Braithwaite for Labour in the 1997 election, mirroring the events of real life. The constituency was won in 1983 by the Conservative David Ashby. He stood down in 1997 when the seat was won by Labour's David Taylor, who held the seat until he died of a heart attack

    Plymouth, Sutton was, from 1918 until 2010, a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. Plymouth Sutton covered parts of the city of Plymouth, in South West England, and was first contested at the 1918 general election. In a by-election in 1919, it became the second constituency in the UK (and the first in Great Britain) to elect a female MP: Nancy Astor became the first woman to take a seat in the House of Commons (the first female MP was the Sinn Féin member Constance Markievicz, who did not take her seat). Three of its MPs have been members of the Astor family. A more recent prominent MP was the flamboyant Conservative Alan Clark, who represented Plymouth Sutton from 1974 until 1992. Following a review of parliamentary representation in Devon by the Boundary Commission for England, constituencies in Plymouth have been reorganised, with both Plymouth Sutton and Plymouth Devonport being replaced by new constituencies of Plymouth Sutton and Devonport and Plymouth Moor View from 2010.

It returns one Member of Parliament (MP), elected by the first past the post system. Pontypridd constituency can be split into two parts, an eastern part containing the town itself, and a western part focussed on Llantrisant. In Pontypridd itself the wards are: Town, Treforest, Rhondda (consisting of Hopkinstown, Maesycoed, Graigwen, Trehafod, & Pwllgwaun), Graig, Trallwng, Rhydyfelin Central & Ilan, Hawthorn, Taffs Well. The Western half consists of the following wards: Beddau, Church Village, Tonteg, Llantwit Fardre, Llantrisant, Pontyclun, Talbot Green, Tonyrefail East and Tonyrefail West. Alternatively, one can think of the constituency as being divided between a 'suburban' district in the south and communities that grew in the industrial revolution to the north; the Southern area, particularly between Church Village and Llantrisant, contains much new residential and light industrial development, and benefits from good transport links due to its proximity to the M4.

    Texas's 14th congressional district

    Texas's 14th district for the United States House of Representatives is a Congressional district that covers the area south and southwest of the Greater Houston region, including Galveston, in the state of Texas. The district was created as a result of the 1900 U.S. Census and was first contested in 1902. Its first representative—Democrat James L. Slayden, who had served another district in Congress since 1897—began representing the 14th in March 1903 as a member of the 58th United States Congress. Republicans had a handful of victories in this district in the early 20th century, which was remarkable given the heavily Democratic tilt of Texas at the time. The district's ultimate shift to the Republican Party in the 1980s has been attributed to the coattail effect of Ronald Reagan's electoral successes though a handful of Democrats won elections in the 1990s, as well as Houston's suburbs bleeding into the eastern portion of the district. The district's current representative is Ron Paul. Incumbent Harry M.

    Cockermouth

    Cockermouth was the name of a constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of England in 1295, and again from 1641, then of the Parliament of Great Britain from 1707 to 1800 and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 to 1918. It was a parliamentary borough represented by two Members of Parliament until 1868, and by one member from 1868 to 1885. The name was then transferred to a county constituency electing one MP from 1885 until 1918. Notable MPs have included the regicide, Francis Allen. Until the Great Reform Act of 1832, the constituency consisted solely of the market town of Cockermouth in Cumberland. It first returned members to the Model Parliament of 1295, but its franchise then seems to have lapsed until 1641, when the Long Parliament passed a resolution (15 February 1641) to restore its ancient privileges. The right of election in Cockermouth was vested in the burgage tenants of the borough, of whom there were about 300 in 1832. Cockermouth was considered a pocket borough, with the vast majority of the voters being under the influence of the Lowther family. At the time of the 1831 census, the borough included just over 1,000 houses and had a

It is bordered on the north by the United States of America; on the south and west by the Pacific Ocean; on the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea; and on the east by the Gulf of Mexico. Covering almost two million square kilometres (over 760,000 sq mi), Mexico is the fifth largest country in the Americas by total area and the thirteenth largest independent nation in the world. With an estimated population of over 113 million, it is the world's eleventh most populous country and the most populous Spanish-speaking country. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states and a Federal District, the capital city. In pre-Columbian Mexico many cultures matured into advanced civilizations such as the Olmec, the Toltec, the Teotihuacan, the Zapotec, the Maya and the Aztec before first contact with Europeans.

Labour's Richard Caborn represented Sheffield Central from its creation in 1983 until he retired in 2010 and was succeeded by another Labour MP, Paul Blomfield. A previous seat named Sheffield Central existed from 1885 until 1950. The seat covers central Sheffield and extends as far as Nether Edge and the Manor. It covers a similar area to the former Sheffield Park seat, and includes all or most of the wards of Broomhill, Central, Nether Edge, Manor Castle, and Walkley. It borders the constituencies of Sheffield Attercliffe, Sheffield Brightside, Sheffield Hallam, Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield Hillsborough. The Boundary Commission recommended that Sheffield Central lose Burngreave to the renamed Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough constituency, but gain Broomhill ward from Sheffield Hallam and Walkley from Sheffield Hillsborough. This change took place at the 2010 general election. Sheffield Central constituency was originally

    Idaho

    Idaho (/ˈaɪdəhoʊ/) is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th most expansive, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States. The state's largest city and capital is Boise. Residents are called "Idahoans". Idaho was admitted to the Union on July 3, 1890, as the 43rd state. Idaho is a mountainous state with an area larger than that of all of New England. It is landlocked, surrounded by the states of Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and the Canadian province of British Columbia. However, the network of dams and locks on the Columbia River and Snake River make the city of Lewiston the farthest inland seaport on the Pacific coast of the contiguous United States. Idaho's nickname is the "Gem State", because nearly every known type of gemstone has been found here. In addition, Idaho is one of only two places in the world where star garnets can be found (the other is the Himalaya Mountains, in India). Additionally Idaho is sometimes called the "Potato State" owing to its popular crop. The state motto is Esto Perpetua (Latin for "Let it be forever"). The exact origin of the name remains a mystery.

It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The seat is the most diverse of the Nottingham constituencies covering both wealthy and poorer areas.

    Sheffield Ecclesall

    Sheffield Ecclesall was a Parliamentary constituency represented by a single Member of Parliament in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1950. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, elected by the first past the post system. Ecclesall constituency covered south central Sheffield. Most of the area that made up this constituency is now included in Sheffield Heeley constituency. The seat was created in 1885, prior to its creation the area had been part of the larger Sheffield borough constituency, which was represented by two MPs. The 1885 Redistribution of Seats Act, which sought to eliminate multi-member constituencies and give greater representation to urban areas, led to the break-up of the constituency into five divisions, each represented by a single MP. Ecclesall was one of these new divisions. The seat was abolished in 1950 as part of a redrawing of the Sheffield constituency boundaries that also led to the abolition of Sheffield Central and the creation of Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield Neepsend. The constituency was abolished in 1950. Peter Roberts subsequently stood for, and won, the new Sheffield Heeley

    Southwark Central

    Southwark Central was a borough constituency returning a single Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom through the first past the post voting system. The constituency was a very compact and urban area, and was one of three divisions of the Parliamentary Borough of Southwark, which was identical to the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, in South London. The creation of the constituency was recommended by the Boundary Commission in a report issued in 1917, and formally created by the Representation of the People Act 1918. It came into existence at the 1918 general election. As the borough of Southwark had only 67,279 electors on 15 October 1946, the relevant date for the subsequent Boundary Commission review, the borough was only entitled to a single Member of Parliament. As a consequence Southwark Central was abolished as a separate constituency by the Representation of the People Act 1948, along with its neighbours Southwark North and Southwark South East and went out of existence at the 1950 general election, forming part of the re-established Southwark constituency.

    Truro and St Austell

    Truro was the name of a parliamentary constituency in Cornwall represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1295 until 1918 and from 1950 to 1997. Until 1885 it was a parliamentary borough electing two Members of Parliament (MPs) by the bloc vote system of election; the name was then transferred to the surrounding county constituency, which elected one MP by the first past the post system. In 1997, though there had been no changes to its boundaries, it was renamed Truro and St Austell, reflecting the fact that St Austell has a larger population than Truro. 1295-1885: The parliamentary borough before 1832 consisted of only part of the town (later city) of Truro, and was extended by the Great Reform Act to contain the whole town (St Mary parish and part of the parishes of St Kenwyn and St Clement) but nothing beyond that. 1885-1918: The county division took in a considerable area of South-West Cornwall, including (as well as Truro itself) the town of Helston. Also, in the towns of Falmouth and Penryn, which together constituted a borough constituency adjoining Truro, the freeholders could vote in the Truro division. This constituency was abolished

    Wirral South is a county constituency in Merseyside, represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first-past-the-post system of election, and was first contested in 1983. The constituency was formed from parts of the former seats of Wirral and Bebington and Ellesmere Port. Both had been held by the Conservative Party, for whom Barry Porter took the new seat in that year's general election. Following the death of Porter in late 1996, a by-election was held in February 1997. This was the last by-election of that Parliament, held a matter of weeks before the general election was called. It was won by Ben Chapman of the Labour Party, who held the seat until retiring following controversy over his expenses. Labour narrowly managed to hold on in the 2010 General Election. The constituency is one of four covering the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, covering the south of the borough. It contains the towns of Heswall and Bebington and the villages of Bromborough, Eastham, Brimstage and Thornton Hough.
