Constituency Profile

This is Wales' most westerly constituency.

Preseli Pembrokeshire is predominantly rural, made up of parts of English-speaking south Pembrokeshire and a large Welsh-speaking population in the north of the county. The main towns are Fishguard, a major sea ferry port to Ireland, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven and the cathedral city of St David's, the UK's smallest city. This part of Wales is a popular place to retire to and 23% of the local population is aged over 65. The share of the Welsh population in the same age-group is 20%. The area includes Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and tourism is a key employer. The constituency sits in the Assembly region of Mid and West Wales. Labour won this seat at the first two Assembly elections but in 2007 it turned blue and the Conservative Paul Davies has held it since. In 2011 Mr Davies won 42.4% of the vote. Labour secured 34.4%, Plaid Cymru came third with 15.5% and the Liberal Democrats came fourth with 7.7%.
