Constituency Profile

The constituency stretches from Carmarthen in the east, to the southern tip of the Haven waterway on the Pembrokeshire coast.

The traditional seaside resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot are in the constituency, as is Laugharne, which was once home to the poet Dylan Thomas.The rate of economic inactivity at the end of 2014 was 27% and higher than the average for Wales. The proportion of self-employed workers here at the end of 2014 was 11.8% - higher than the Welsh and British averages. At 11.9% the proportion of people with no qualifications is also higher than the Welsh and British averages. Fewer than 1,504 votes have separated first and second place since 1999 in a seat which has been a three way battle between Labour, the Conservatives and Plaid Cymru. Labour held the seat in the first two Assembly elections. In 2007 the Conservatives won with a majority of 98, which increased to 1,504 in 2011.
