Barnsley East and Mexborough is a Parliamentary constituency in South Yorkshire. It is considered a safe Labour seat and has been represented by Jeff Ennis since the 1996 by-election. The seat was created in 1997, by renaming Barnsley East. The constituency will revert to Barnsley East at the next UK general election.

Boundaries

Barnsley East and Mexborough constituency covers the eastern part of the Borough of Barnsley and includes the town of Mexborough (in the borough of Doncaster). It borders the constituencies of Barnsley Central, Barnsley West and Penistone, Wentworth, Don Valley, Doncaster Central, Doncaster North, Selby, and Hemsworth.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in South Yorkshire, the Boundary Commission for England has split the existing Barnsley East seat from Mexborough, to create a smaller modified Barnsley East constituency.

This means the 2005 election was the last for the current Barnsley East/Mexborough constituency. The electoral wards used in the formation of the new East division are:

*Cudworth, Darfield, Hoyland Milton, North East, Rockingham, Stairfoot, Wombwell and Worsbrough.

The new Wentworth and Dearne seat shall include the wards of Dearne North and Dearne South. This area includes Bolton-on-Dearne, Goldthorpe and Thurnscoe

Members of Parliament

The constituency has had one Member of Parliament since its creation in 1997, from the Labour Party.
