Banbury is a constituency in Oxfordshire[n 1] created in 1553 and represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2015 by Victoria Prentis of the Conservative Party.[n 2] The constituency is commonly, but erroneously, referred to as the North Oxfordshire constituency.

In terms of electorate Banbury was the 16th largest constituency in the United Kingdom at the time of the 2015 general election.[3]

History[edit]

The constituency was created January 26, 1554 through the efforts of Henry Stafford and Thomas Denton.[4] Until 1885 it was a parliamentary borough, consisting of the town of Banbury; since then it has been a county constituency, consisting of a northern part of Oxfordshire. It was the constituency represented by Lord North, the Prime Minister during the American War of Independence.

Political history

Banbury has a post-World War I history of Conservative representation and local support for the party. Its MPs since 1922 have all served long terms in office and each since 1922 has been knighted. Following a close election in 1923, the largest vote since 1922 has at each election been for a Conservative. In 2010 Tony Baldry (Con) almost doubled his majority. The 2015 result made the seat the 125th safest of the Conservative Party's 331 seats by percentage of majority.[5]

Other parties

Four of the six parties' candidates achieved more than the deposit-retaining threshold of 5% of the vote in 2015. In 2001 Labour Party candidate Lesley Silbey won the largest opposing-party share of the vote since 1974 — 35% of the vote. Prior to 1974, the highest percentage of votes for the second-placed candidate was in 1945 — 48% of the vote.

Constituency profile[edit]

The constituency has relatively high economic dependence on agriculture, as well as modern industry (particularly motor sport), research and development, public services and, to a lesser extent, defence. It contains two large market towns, Banbury and Bicester, where the majority of the electorate live. It is a partly rural seat, with the north west of the constituency on the edge of the Cotswolds. The Banbury constituency has experienced significant urban growth in Banbury and Bicester, where the majority of the electorate live. The area has experienced significant urban growth and is popular with commuters who favour its fast transport links to Birmingham, Oxford and London by rail, or the M40. More than one in 10 of the population is employed in higher managerial, administrative and professional work, according to ONS 2011 Census figures for England and Wales. In 2015 the seat was home to 4.3% of EU residents and unemployment was 2.9%.[6] There are some Labour voting wards in Banbury itself, but the remainder of the constituency including Bicester and the smaller rural towns and villages are safely Conservative.
