Wolverhampton South East 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

Wolverhampton South East is one of three constituencies covering the city of Wolverhampton, covering eastern and south-eastern parts of the city. The constituency includes the town of Bilston.

The boundaries run south from the city centre towards Blakenhall and Goldthorn Park, and east towards Willenhall. There are six wards in the seat: Bilston East, Bilston North, Blakenhall, East Park, Ettingshall and Spring Vale.

History

The constituency was established in 1974, in part replacing the former Bilston constituency. Robert Edwards of the Labour and Co-operative Parties, who had represented Bilston since 1955, was the constituency's first MP. He served until 1987, when he was succeeded by Dennis Turner (also Labour Co-operative), who stood down in 2005. Pat McFadden of the Labour Party has been the MP since then.
