Loughborough is a county 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 comprises the towns of Loughborough and Shepshed, the villages of Barrow upon Soar, Hathern, Sileby and Quorn and a number of smaller villages in the Wolds. It borders the constituencies of North West Leicestershire, Charnwood, Rutland and Melton and Rushcliffe.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in Leicestershire, the Boundary Commission for England has made only minor changes to the existing constituency boundaries. The newly modified Loughborough constituency is formed from the following electoral wards:
*Barrow and Sileby West, Loughborough Ashby, Loughborough Dishley and Hathern, Loughborough Garendon, Loughborough Hastings, Loughborough Lemyngton, Loughborough Nanpantan, Loughborough Outwoods, Loughborough Shelthorpe, Loughborough Southfields, Loughborough Storer, Quorn and Mountsorrel Castle, Shepshed East, Shepshed West, Sileby and The Wolds.

History

Loughborough was originally part of a larger constituency, Leicestershire, which was split into two districts in the Reform Act of 1832. In the Redistribution of Seats Act of 1885 Leicestershire was divided into four parts, Eastern (Melton), Mid (Loughborough), Western (Bosworth) and Southern (Harborough), each returning one member. Furthermore, there was included a borough constituency for Leicester which returned two MPs.

In 1983 the Leicestershire coalfield, an area loyal to Labour, was removed from the constituency and replaced by much of the Soar Valley, a rural area that tended to vote Conservative. In 1995 the Soar Valley was moved to the newly created Charnwood constituency.

Members of Parliament

The current Member of Parliament for Loughborough, since 1997, is Andy Reed for the Labour Party.
