This seat and its predecessors have only elected Conservative MPs since 1918, often with large majorities. East Surrey covers rolling countryside, towns and villages and is home to a high number of London commuters. Much of the area is covered by wooded hillsides and farmland, the small towns of Caterham, Oxted, Horley and Warlingham are the main populated areas. Crossed by the M25 and M23, the seat lies close to Gatwick Airport, which, along with associated industries, is a big employer.
East Surrey is home to lots of families, the majority of whom are homeowners. Unemployment is low here. A high percentage of its workforce are employed in finance and insurance, according to the 2011 Census. There are lots of managers and directors, and relatively few unskilled workers.
Conservative Sam Gyimah won the seat in 2010 with a big majority of 16,874. The Lib Dems were second. UKIP got 6.9% of the vote and kept their deposit.
