All Updates

Falmouth and Camborne was, from 1950 until 2010, a county 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.


The Falmouth and Camborne seat was created in 1950, succeeding the former Camborne constituency. The seat had an industrial tradition, mostly in tin mining. The seat alternated between the Labour and Conservative parties until 2005, when it was won by Julia Goldsworthy of the Liberal Democrats.

The former gold medal-winning athlete Sebastian Coe represented this seat as a Conservative from 1992 until his defeat by Labour in 1997.


At the time of its abolition, the constituency contained wards from both the Carrick and Kerrier districts of Cornwall. As well as Falmouth and Camborne, it also included the town of Redruth.

Boundary changes

Following its review of parliamentary representation in Cornwall, the Boundary Commission for England abolished this constituency at the 2010 general election. The new Camborne and Redruth seat took most of the electoral wards from this seat, while the remaining wards form part of the new Truro and Falmouth constituency.
