Mid Worcestershire 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.
The present Mid Worcestershire constituency, which has existed since 1997, covers central and south-eastern parts of the county of Worcestershire. It covers most of the Wychavon district, including Broadway, Droitwich and Evesham, but excluding the areas around Pershore (which is in the Worcestershire West constituency) and around Inkberrow (in the Redditch constituency).
Eric Forth of the Conservative Party represented the original Mid Worcestershire constituency from 1983 until 1997. Following the considerable boundary changes (described above) that took effect at the 1997 general election, Peter Luff (whose Worcester constituency considerably overlapped the new seat) was selected as the Conservative candidate. (Eric Forth was subsequently elected for Bromley and Chislehurst.) Peter Luff has remained as MP since then.
