Following their review of parliamentary representation in West Yorkshire, the Boundary Commission for England have created a number of modified constituencies as a consequence of a falling population.
A new constituency of Elmet and Rothwell has been created to move Rothwell from this seat. The successor seat to Morley and Rothwell is Morley and Outwood, which attaches wards from Wakefield to the Morley area. Middleton is being transferred to the Leeds Central seat.
