- List of Parliamentary constituencies in Herefordshire and Worcestershire
The 8 Parliamentary constituencies in the geographic counties of
Herefordshireand Worcestershire, in use up to the United Kingdom general election, 2005were drawn up when the two were combined as Hereford and Worcester. This has left one constituency spanning what is now the county boundary. There are 2 Borough constituencies and 6 County constituencies.
Current proposals by the
Boundary Commission for Englandwould retain these 8 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundarieswith the county boundary and the boundaries of current local government wards,and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. These changes are expected to be implemented at the next general election, due by 2010. Hereford is to be renamed Hereford and South Herefordshire and Leominster as North Herefordshire.
