Yorkshire: New Constituency Boundaries 2006

Each new seat can be described as a combination of parts of old seats. These table show this decomposition. The winner of the old seat at the 2005 election is shown by party colour, as is the implied winner of the new seat.

The implied results are now calculated using the local election results for the wards which make up each old seat. This should be more accurate than the earlier implied results which assumed each constituency was homogeneous.

The two main changes in North Yorkshire are that the new seat of Selby and Ainsty is predicted to be a Conservative seat (as at May 2005), rather than the old Labour seat of Selby, and that the new seat of York Outer is predicted to be Lib Dem rather than Conservative. In West Yorkshire, Labour loses the old seat of Normanton which has been fragmented between new seats.
