Vale of York 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

This constituency covers the Vale of York and includes the north western suburbs of York and the market towns of Easingwold, Bedale, Boroughbridge and Thirsk.

The seat was formed in 1997 from parts of the old Ryedale, Harrogate, Skipton & Ripon and Richmond constituencies.

The reconfiguration of North Yorkshire's constituencies by the Boundary Commission for England has seen the creation of a York Central and a York Outer. This will see the Vale of York constituency abolished before the next general election.

The populous York suburbs will become part of York Outer. Easingwold, Thirsk and surrounding villages will join rural Ryedale to form a new Thirsk and Malton constituency. Bedale will rejoin the Richmond constituency. Boroughbridge will become part of an enlarged Harrogate seat, while Skipton & Ripon will regain some of the surrounding villages. The enlarged Selby and Ainsty seat will now encompass Marston Moor and Spofforth.

Members of Parliament

* 1997 – "present": Anne McIntosh, Conservative
