MPs since 1983Edit
|1971 by-election||Terry Davis||Labour|
|Feb 1974||constituency abolished: see Bromsgrove & Redditch|
1983–present: The District of Bromsgrove.
1950-1974: The Urban Districts of Bromsgrove and Redditch, and the Rural District of Bromsgrove. The constituency was renamed Bromsgrove and Redditch in 1974, but the boundaries remained unchanged until 1983.
The constituency covers the same area as Bromsgrove District Council in north Worcestershire, with twenty civil parishes. It includes the villages of Alvechurch, Barnt Green, Belbroughton, Blackwell, Clent, Cofton Hackett, Hagley, Hollywood, Lickey, Marlbrook, Rubery, Tardebigge and Wythall.
The borough of Bromsgrove returned two members (Thomas Rassall and Thomas Barneford) to the original Model Parliament in 1295. However, borough status appeared lost when no other member was sent to any subsequent parliament under that status.
The MP from 1997 to 2010, Julie Kirkbride, announced on 28 May 2009 that she would be standing down as an MP at the next General Election in light of the expenses scandal. Her resignation was confirmed in December 2009, after an attempt to withdraw it.
The winner of the 2010 election, Sajid Javid (formerly the youngest Vice President of Chase Manhattan Bank and a Deutsche Bank board director) has held ministerial roles in Treasury as Economic Secretary and Financial Secretary. As well as Cabinet posts as Culture Secretary, Business Secretary, Communities Secretary, and since 2018 as Home Secretary.
