Dagenham and Rainham is a 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. It was first contested in the 2010 general election.
Following their review of parliamentary representation in North London, the Boundary Commission for England created the constituency by merging the majority of the former constituencies of Dagenham and Hornchurch. Following a review of ward boundaries a small part of River ward was also transferred from Barking.
- From Barking and Dagenham: Chadwell Heath (not to be confused with the Chadwell ward in neighbouring Redbridge), Eastbrook, Heath, River, Village, Whalebone
- From Havering: Elm Park, Rainham and Wennington, South Hornchurch
Before 1945 the Dagenham area was part of the Romford constituency. The MP for the latter seat since 1935, Labour's John Parker, continued to represent Dagenham until 1983. Parker was the last serving MP to have been elected before the Second World War, and with 48 years in Parliament, remains the longest-serving Labour MP in history.
In 2010 Labour's Jon Cruddas took the seat despite a strong swing against him towards the Conservatives. BNP candidate Michael Barnbrook came third with 11.2% of the vote, his party's second-best showing in the 2010 election.
