Constituency profile

Stretching along the north bank of the Thames is the seat of Brentford and Isleworth. The A4 "Golden Mile" runs through the constituency and is home to a number of multi-nationals including: BSkyB, Cable and Wireless, GlaxoSmithKline and the flagship Audi Centre. Unsurprisingly, one in 10 of the population works in the information and communications sector - the eighth highest of all the constituencies in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures.

Professional, scientific and technical activities also account for a high number of jobs. At 42.8%, it has one of the higher proportions of people with a degree level qualification. The seat is diverse - over a quarter of the population is Asian/Asian British, with a high proportion of Muslims and Sikhs.

In 2010, Conservative Mary MacLeod took the seat from Labour with 37.2% of the votes; Labour got 33.6%, Liberal Democrats got 23.7% and UKIP got 1.6%.
