The representation was reduced to one MP in 1885. Cambridge was Conservative-won from 1910 until 1934, from 1950 until 1966 and from 1967 until 1992. A Labour candidate first won Cambridge

Related extra representation 1603–1950

Historically the city of Cambridge
Cambridge
retained some electors and was often the source of MPs to a second constituency, for Cambridge University, covering all successful alumni in its electorate. The university seat was created in 1603 as part of the scheme of University constituencies. Its MPs included Isaac Newton, William Pitt the Younger, Lord Palmerston, George Stokes, Richard Jebb, and Archibald Hill
Archibald Hill
before abolition in 1950. Overview of results since 1992[edit] In 1992 Cambridge
Cambridge
was won by Labour's Anne Campbell, who held onto the seat for 13 years (in this case three Parliamentary terms). In 2005 it was taken by David Howarth
David Howarth
of the Liberal Democrats, the first time the party including its two forerunner parties had taken the seat since the 1906 Liberal-progressive landslide; his successor, Julian Huppert, held the seat with an increased majority in the 2010 general election. In 2015 Huppert was unseated by the Labour candidate Daniel Zeichner who took the seat with a thin majority of 599 votes. The 2015 result gave the seat the 7th-smallest majority of Labour's 232 seats by percentage of majority.[3]

Most recent results of other parties

In 2015 three other parties candidates kept their deposits by winning more than 5% of the vote. In order of public preference these candidates stood for the Conservatives, Green Party and UKIP respectively.

Notes and references[edit]

Notes

^ As with all constituencies, Cambridge
Cambridge
elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election at least every five years. It is a borough constituency rather than county constituency which determines the exact level of election expenses available and the type of returning officer appointed for the count. ^ Old Holborn is the name of a popular libertarian blog, and the author of the blog stood for election under the name of his blog, rather than his own name.
