Beverley and Holderness 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.

Boundaries

The constituency covers the south-east area of the East Riding of Yorkshire and borders with the East Yorkshire, Haltemprice and Howden, Kingston upon Hull North & Kingston upon Hull East constituencies. It also borders a stretch of the North Sea coast from Skipsea to Spurn Point, and the Humber estuary to Hedon.

History

The constituency first sent members to Parliament regularly from 1563 as "Beverley", but was disenfranchised in 1869. It was re-created for a short time between 1950 and 1955 and then again in 1983. In 1997 the constituency was renamed to the current form, "Beverley and Holderness". Following the elections in 2005, a ballot box was stolen.
