Haltemprice and Howden 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.

Boundaries

The constituency covers a wide area stretching from the border of Hull in the east to the outskirts of Goole in the west and northwards to Holme-on-Spalding-Moor. The bulk of the population is centred in the villages of Willerby, Kirk Ella, Anlaby and Cottingham. Rural Howdenshire forms the bulk of the geographical area of the constituency but provides only a small part of the total electorate.

The constituency includes many towns and villages along the A63 corridor including, Brough, Elloughton, South Cave, North Ferriby, Swanland, Gilberdyke, Newport, Welton and Melton.

There are currently Conservative Councillors in Howden, Howdenshire, Dale, South Hunsley, Cottingham North and Willerby and Kirk Ella Wards. The Liberal Democrats enjoy their strongest support in Anlaby, Anlaby Common and parts of Cottingham. The Lib Dems only hold Councillors in Tranby Ward (Anlaby & Anlaby Common) and the Cottingham South Ward. There are no Labour Councillors in the constituency. The local East Riding Council is strongly Conservative and the Tories currently hold 47 of the 64 seats on the Council.

This constituency will see only small boundary changes before the next election. These minor adjustments will bring the constituencies of the East Riding into line with local government boundaries. Haltemprice and Howden will lose the village of North Newbald to Beverley and Holderness and gain the village of Dunswell from Beverley and Holderness. The electoral impact of these changes is insignificant.

History

The constituency was created for the 1997 general election, covering an area previously part of the Boothferry constituency. In 1997, it returned the Conservative David Davis, who had previously been the member for Boothferry; he was re-elected in the 2001 and 2005 general elections.

In 2005, the Liberal Democrats made this one of their top targets for unseating Conservative MPs. That campaign failed with the Conservatives increasing their majority three-fold and the Lib Dem share of the vote falling. Since then the Lib Dems have continued to collapse locally, losing a number of Councillors, including the previously safe Lib Dem Howden Ward in a by-election in December 2005. The Lib Dems lost 5 seats here in the local elections of 2007 and there are now 14 Conservative Councillors compared to four Lib Dem Councillors in the constituency.

The area was placed as 10th most affluent in the country in the 2003 Barclays Private Clients survey. [cite news|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/3025321.stm|title=North tops 'real' rich league|date=2003-05-14|publisher=BBC News|accessdate=2008-06-19]

2008 by-election

On 12 June 2008, a day after a vote on the extension of detention of terror suspects without charge, in a surprise and controversial move, David Davis resigned as the constituency's long term MP. He stated this was in order to force a by-election, in which he intended to provoke a wider public debate on the single issue of the perceived erosion of civil liberties. Over the course of the following week, the campaign was launched on the theme of David Davis for Freedom.

Davis formally resigned as MP on 18 June 2008, and the by-election took place on 10 July 2008. [cite news|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7460345.stm|title=Labour did not stand against Davis |date=2008-06-18|publisher=BBC News|accessdate=2008-06-19]
