Constituency profile

This largely prosperous West Yorkshire seat covers many towns and villages between the cities of Leeds and Bradford. It is home to lots of commuters but Pudsey, a market town, also has a strong retail sector which provides many local jobs. Guiseley was home to the first Harry Ramsden fish shop while Yeadon has one dating back to the 1870s. Engineering and textiles are among local industries while Leeds Bradford Airport, just outside the constituency, also provides jobs.

This seat is home to lots of homeowners and full time workers. About 80% of households have at least one car and unemployment is below average, according to the 2011 Census. It has more residents in professional, technical and administrative jobs than average.

Labour took the seat from the Conservatives during their 1997 landslide. In 2010, Conservative Stuart Andrew won it back by 1,659 votes.
