This constituency is based around Scotland's oldest new town - East Kilbride. Its post-war housing, built on former farm land, has attracted families who work in office-based centres and who commute into nearby Glasgow, 8 miles to the north west.
The area's Hairmyres Hospital was opened 10 years ago and was built with private finance initiative money. The constituency's good road and public transport links has attracted some big employers. These include HM Revenue and Customs, which has several large office in East Kilbride, although these are facing closure as the agency restructures its operations. The dairy company Robert Wiseman is also based in East Kilbride, and the town centre is occuped by a large shopping centre comprising six interlinked malls.
Labour's Andy Kerr represented the seat from the founding of the Scottish Parliament in 1999 until Linda Fabiani took it for the SNP in 2011.
