Huyton was a county constituency in the United Kingdom. Created in 1950, it comprised the area of Huyton in the county of Lancashire, and included surrounding areas. Its one and only Member of Parliament throughout its existence was Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

The constituency ceased to exist with the implementation of the 1983 boundary changes and was replaced by the Knowsley South Constituency.

Boundaries

As created in 1950, the constituency included the urban districts of Huyton with Roby, Prescot, and the parishes of Eccleston, Kirkby, Knowsley and Windle from the Whiston Rural District. The area had previously formed part of the Widnes constituency. In 1970 it was redefined, excluding Kirkby, which instead became part of the Ormskirk constituency.
