For the purposes of % change and swing calculations, Liberal-Labour and Liberal candidates are considered to belong to the same party as are Conservative and Liberal Unionist candidates. Positive swing is towards the Conservative/Liberal Unionist candidate and negative swing is towards the Liberal-Labour/Liberal candidate. No swing figure is calculated unless the same two parties are in first and second place in both the present and the last election.
