Constituency Profile

The Vale of Glamorgan is a constituency in south Wales between Cardiff and Bridgend which takes in the Glamorgan coastline.

It is a diverse constituency which takes in the town of Barry, once the largest coal port in the world, and the more affluent and rural town of Cowbridge. Barry itself is the constituency's largest population centre and is the fifth largest locality in Wales. Although many people commute to Cardiff for work, the area is the home of Cardiff International Airport which is a major employer. Recent figures put the unemployment rate in the area at 6.1%, compared to 5.5% for the UK as a whole. The seat has been held by Labour's Jane Hutt since 1999, but with very slim majorities in 1999 and 2007.

In 2011, Ms Hutt won with 47.4% of the vote, compared to 36% for the Conservatives, 12.1% for Plaid Cymru, and 4.5% for the Liberal Democrats. She had a majority of 3,775.
