Ormskirk was a county constituency represented in the House of
Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elected one
Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of
election. It was created by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 as
a division of the parliamentary county of Lancashire. The
boundaries were altered in 1918, 1950, 1955 and 1970. The
constituency was a Labour - Conservative marginal for much of its
history, changing hands several times between the two parties
during its 98 year existence. The seat was initially a safe
Conservative seat under the influence of the Stanleys, the Earls of
Derby. Indeed the seat was held for twenty years by Arthur Stanley,
a younger son of the 16th Earl.
