Constituency profile

Just north of the River Thames is the seat of East Ham. The constituency contains the King George V and the Royal Albert Docks, and London City Airport. The ExCel centre is the impetuous behind the construction of a number of international hotels.

The area benefits from the Thames Gateway regeneration of the London Riverside area. The Silvertown Quays redevelopment will create an innovative quarter and an estimated 21,000 jobs. Three quarters of the population are non-white; over a third are Muslim and more than half are Asian - the fourth highest proportion of any constituency in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures. There is also a large black population.

One of the safest Labour seats in the country, Stephen Timms has been MP since 1994. In 2010, he held the seat with 70.4% of the votes; Conservatives got 15.2%, Liberal Democrats 11.6% and English Democrats 1.6%.
