Boothferry was a constituency in Humberside which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was created for the 1983 general election, and abolished for the 1997 general election.


This was a safe Conservative seat for the fourteen years of its existence. It was held by David Davis, who would go on to be shadow Home Secretary, from 1987 general election until its abolition.


Named after the Humberside district of Boothferry, this constituency included areas which prior to local government reorganisation in 1974 had been in the West Riding of Yorkshire (Goole), the East Riding of Yorkshire (Howden) and Lincolnshire, Parts of Lindsey (Epworth and the Isle of Axholme). Apart from Goole itself, the constituency was largely rural.

As Humberside was awarded an extra seat in the boundary review implemented in 1997, the constituency was split into four, Brigg and Goole, Yorkshire East, Haltemprice and Howden and Beverley and Holderness being the destinations of the constituents in descending order.
