Pudsey 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 number of the suburbs to the west and north-west of Leeds, including Pudsey, Farsley, Horsforth, Yeadon and Guiseley. It was usually a fairly safe Tory seat before Labour gained it for the first time in 1997.

After the proposed boundary changes it will be made up of four Leeds City Council wards:

* Calverley and Farsley
* Guiseley and Rawdon
* Horsforth
* Pudsey.

History

The constituency was created in 1885 by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885, and was first used in the general election of that year.

The constituency was abolished in 1918 and replaced by the constituency of Pudsey and Otley until 1950.

The constituency was recreated in 1950 and used in the 1950 general election.
