- Milton Keynes (UK Parliament constituency)
Milton Keynes Former Borough constituency for the House of Commons County Buckinghamshire Major settlements Milton Keynes 1983–1992 Number of members One Replaced by North East Milton Keynes and Milton Keynes South West Created from Buckingham
It covered the north Buckinghamshire Borough of Milton Keynes, including Milton Keynes itself (and thus its older settlements such as Bletchley and Wolverton) together with Newport Pagnell, Olney and the rural area to the north of Milton Keynes.
The Borough of Milton Keynes was established in 1974, seven years after the new town was first designated. Before 1983, the Borough was part of the Buckingham constituency; however, its population had expanded to such an extent that a new constituency was created. The sitting Buckingham MP, William Benyon of the Conservative Party, was elected for the new seat, and was its only ever MP.
