The Wrekin is a constituency represented in the House of Commonsmarker of the Parliament of the United Kingdommarker. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

The Wrekin should not be confused with the old Wrekin constituency.

Boundaries

The Wrekin is located in east Shropshiremarker and is a mixed constituency that wraps around the New Town of Telfordmarker, encompassing much of the rural parts of the Telford and Wrekin borough, of which most of the constituency lies in. Within the constituency are the towns of Wellingtonmarker, Newportmarker and Shifnalmarker, as well as the suburban northern reaches of Telford (including Donningtonmarker). A small but significant area is in the former Bridgnorthmarker local government district (now part of the new unitary authority, Shropshire Council) and contains DCAE Cosfordmarker and a number of commuter villages along the M54 motorway.

The civil parishes of Sheriffhalesmarker, Shifnal, Tongmarker, Boscobelmarker, Albrightonmarker, Doningtonmarker and Boningalemarker make up the Shropshire Council part of the constituency.

Boundary changes to realign the constituency boundaries to fit with the borough's new wards will result in the removal of Ketleymarker.
