Constituency Profile

Although the seat covers a large rural area, most of its population live in the industrial town of Greenock. As home of the first dock on the Clyde in 1711, the town grew up around shipbuilding.

With the decline of the industry over the last few decades, computer and electronics firms became a source of employment. But that sector too has been hit by hardship over the last few years with 90 IBM call centre jobs being lost in May 2015. Parts of the constituency, including areas of Greenock and Port Glasgow, suffer from deprivation and social problems.Other towns in the seat include the seaside resort of Gourock - which boasts its own sea water outdoor swimming pool, and Wemyss Bay, home port of the CalMac ferry company.

Labour's Duncan McNeil has held the seat since the Scottish Parliament's creation in 1999. He stepped down this time.
