European Parliament constituency

|Member State||United Kingdom|
Prior to its uniform adoption of proportional representation in 1999, the United Kingdom used first-past-the-post for the European elections in England, Scotland and Wales. The European Parliament constituencies used under that system were smaller than the later regional constituencies and only had one Member of the European Parliament each.
The constituency of Yorkshire West was one of them.
When it was created in England in 1979, it consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Bradford North, Bradford South, Bradford West, Brighouse and Spenborough, Halifax, Keighley, Shipley, Sowerby, although this may not have been true for the whole of its existence.
The area is now included in the Yorkshire and the Humber European Parliament Constituency, which was represented by seven members in 1999-2004 and six from 2004 onwards.
