Description:
East Yorkshire 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.

Boundaries

East Yorkshire constituency covers the northern part of the East Riding of Yorkshire unitary authority from Pocklington and Market Weighton through Driffield to Bridlington. It corresponds to the former East Yorkshire district.

For the 2010 general election minor boundary changes affected the constituency. The civil parish of Middleton on the Wolds was transferred to the Beverley and Holderness constituency while Brandesburton was gained from the Beverley and Holderness constituency.

History

This safe Conservative seat was created in 1997, replacing the former constituency of Bridlington. The MP for that seat since 1979, John Townend, won the new seat, and held it until he retired in 2001. His successor, the current incumbent Greg Knight, had previously represented the marginal seat of Derby North from 1983 until he was defeated in the Labour landslide in 1997.
