Blackburn is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Workington (UK Parliament constituency) (279 words)
The constituency covers much of the north-west of Cumbria, corresponding largely to the Allerdale borough, except for the area around Wigton.
Traditionally, the constituency has supported the Labour Party, although a by-election in 1976 (forced by the elevation to the House of Lords of Fred Peart), was won by Richard Page of the Conservatives.
However, the constituency reverted to type in the 1979 General Election, when it was regained by Labour, who have held it ever since.
