Cornwall and West Plymouth (European Parliament constituency)

Cornwall and West Plymouth
European Parliament constituency
Member state United Kingdom
Created 1994
Dissolved 1999
MEPs 1

Cornwall and West Plymouth was a European Parliament constituency covering Cornwall and Plymouth in England. With Somerset and North Devon, it was one of the first two seats to elect a Liberal Democrat Member of the European Parliament.

The seat consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Falmouth and Camborne, North Cornwall, Plymouth Devonport, Plymouth Drake, St Ives, South East Cornwall and Truro.[1]

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.

Cornwall and West Plymouth was created in 1994 to replace most of the Cornwall and Plymouth. It became part of the much larger South West England constituency in 1999.
