East Hertfordshire (UK Parliament constituency)

October 3rd, 2018

East Hertfordshire was a parliamentary constituency in the county of Hertfordshire. It returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

1955-1974: The Urban Districts of Bishop’s Stortford, Cheshunt, Hoddesdon, Sawbridgeworth, and Ware, and the Rural Districts of Braughing and Ware.

1974-1983: The Urban Districts of Bishop’s Stortford, Cheshunt, Hoddesdon, and Sawbridgeworth, and the Rural Districts of Braughing and Ware.

The constituency was created for the 1955 general election, and abolished for the 1983 general election.

On its abolition, most of the seat (including Bishop’s Stortford and Sawbridgeworth) was amalgamated with the Hertford and Ware half of Hertford and Stevenage to form the new Hertford and Stortford constituency, while Cheshunt and Hoddesdon were carved off to create the heart of the new Broxbourne constituency.

The writer and TV playwright Dennis Potter was the Labour Party candidate in the constituency at the 1964 general election, but finished second behind the Conservative incumbent. His experience inspired Vote, Vote, Vote for Nigel Barton.
