Constituency profile

Made up of former mill towns on the eastern outskirts of Manchester, Stalybridge and Hyde has elected Labour MPs since 1945. With the decline of the cotton industry, other types of manufacturing sprung up and manufacturing remains a key industry, despite some decline in recent years. This mainly residential seat at the foot of the Pennines is home to lots of blue collar workers. There has been some regeneration of the town centres, parks and public spaces in recent years.

The constituency has a largely white population,with a relatively large Bangladeshi community. It has more long-term sick and disabled residents than average and unemployment is higher than average. It has more people employed in administrative, secretarial and factory work than most places.

In 2010, Labour's Jonathan Reynolds won with a majority of 2,744 votes - the Conservatives came second. The BNP polled over 5% of votes, retaining their deposit.
