London South (European Parliament constituency)


London South (European Parliament constituency)

London South
European Parliament constituency
Member state United Kingdom
Created 1979
Dissolved 1984
MEPs 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.

The constituency of London South was one of them.

When it was created in England in 1979, it consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Carshalton, Croydon Central, Croydon North East, Croydon North West, Croydon South, Mitcham and Morden, Sutton and Cheam, Wimbledon.[1] However from 1984 onwards it was merged into London South and Surrey East, having been combined with half of the former Surrey Constituency.
