Constituency Profile

Dundee was once famed as a city of "jute, jam and journalism", but it is being remodelled as the "city of discovery" in order to attract more tourism and inward investment. The jute mills are gone, but the constituency remains a busy industrial area, with light engineering a source of employment. The city is also marked out for its role in the video games industry.

The area is dominated by large housing estates, but there are also middle-class pockets around the hill known as Dundee Law and the west end. The seat also contains the bulk of the student quarter serving the city's two universities, along with Ninewells Hospital and Dundee Airport.

Labour won the seat with a narrow majority in the first Holyrood election of 1999 and retained it in 2003. However, the SNP's Joe Fitzpatrick won the 2007 poll and retained the seat in 2011.
