Constituency Profile

Montgomeryshire is a rural constituency where agriculture and tourism are key industries.

The constituency is made up of the northern part of Powys in mid-Wales, and many of the area's constituents rely on essential services across the English border in neighbouring Shrewsbury. A museum dedicated to the late Robert Owen - one of Britain's greatest social reformers - is located in the seat's largest town of Newtown. Despite having a higher proportion of people in employment (79.1%) than the Welsh average (69.5%), gross weekly pay is lower at £425.50 compared to the Welsh average of £479.40. The Liberal Democrats won the seat in the first three Assembly elections but the Conservatives won the seat for the first time in 2011 - having won the seat in the 2010 General Election. Russell George secured a majority of 2,324 and 43.7% of the vote for the Conservatives to take the seat from the Liberal Democrats (33.6%), who were ahead of Labour (11.4%) and Plaid Cymru (11.3%).
