Paul Uppal, who lost his Conservative seat in Wolverhampton South West to Labour's Rob Marris, says he'll spend more time with his young family and might start up his own business again.
'A great night in Wolverhampton'standard
New Wolverhampton South West MP Rob Marris says he is "delighted " to return to the seat after a five-year break.
"It's not been a good night for Labour nationally, quite a good night for Labour in parts of the West Midlands and of course a great night for Labour here in Wolverhampton," he said.
Rob Marris has been re-elected as MP for Wolverhampton South West, winning the seat back from Tory Paul Uppal.
This marginal West Midlands seat was once regarded as safe Conservative territory, held by Enoch Powell from 1950 until 1974, and remained Conservative until Labour's 1997 landslide. It returned to the Tories in 2010 by a narrow margin.Wolverhampton South West covers some relatively deprived inner city areas but also more affluent suburbs like Tettenhall to the west.
It has a high number of residents from ethnic minorities. Its Sikh population is among the largest in England and Wales - it is represented by Paul Uppal, the only Sikh MP. The seat also has a relatively high number of single person households and long-term unemployed residents. Most jobs are in manufacturing, wholesale and retail, education, health and social work. It contains the main Wolverhampton University campus and Molineux, the Wolverhampton Wanderers' stadium.
In 2010, the Conservatives won with 40.7% of the vote, Labour got 39.0%, Lib Dems 16% and UKIP 3.7%.
