Constituency Profile

Poor housing is an issue for many residents in this constituency, with the seat containing more tower blocks than any other in Scotland.

Within its boundaries there is the famous Barras market, Parkhead – which is home to one Old Firm team, Celtic – Tollcross and Dalmarnock. Government statistics consistently put the neighbourhood of Shettleston at or near the bottom of league tables of many social indicators, most notably life expectancy.

At the Scottish Parliament election in 1999, Frank McAveety, the leader of Glasgow City Council, won Glasgow Shettleston, and retained the seat in 2003 and 2007. In the 2011 Holyrood polls, the SNP’s John Mason won the constituency.
