Yorkshire North (European Parliament constituency)

Yorkshire North was a European Parliament constituency covering much of North Yorkshire and part of Humberside in England.

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 consisted of the Westminster Parliament constituencies of Barkston Ash, Goole, Harrogate, Ripon, Skipton, Thirsk and Malton, York.[1] In 1984, most of the seat became part of the new York constituency, with small parts going to Humberside and Yorkshire South.
