Brierley Hill parliamentary constituency was located in the West Midlands of
England. It returned one Member of Parliament(MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, elected by the first past the postsystem.
The seat was named after a town in the historic county of
Staffordshirein the West Midlands of England.
It consisted of four local government areas, the
Urban Districts of Amblecote, Brierley Hill, and Tettenhallas well as the Rural Districtof Seisdon, as they existed in 1950.
In the redistribution which took effect in early 1974, this constituency was abolished. There had been changes in local government arrangements since 1950, so most of the area of the old seat had been divided between the
County Boroughs of Dudleyand Wolverhampton. The Brierley Hill ward of Dudley became part of the Dudley West constituency, whereas the Tettenhall Regisand Tettenhall Wightwickwards of Wolverhampton were part of the Wolverhampton South West seat. Seisdon became part of the South West Staffordshire division. Most of Amblecote had been included in the Worcestershire Municipal Boroughof Stourbridge, so it became part of the Halesowen and Stourbridge parliamentary constituency.
