Birmingham, Edgbaston is a constituency,[n 1] created in 1885, in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2017 by Preet Gill MP of Labour Co-operative.[n 2]

Its best-known MP internationally was Neville Chamberlain (Prime Minister 1937–1940) and since 1953 it has elected a succession of female MPs. Since 1992 inclusive it has produced low majorities for the Conservative Party and the Labour Party.

Boundaries[edit]

1997–present: The City of Birmingham wards of Bartley Green, Edgbaston, Harborne, and Quinton.

1983–1997: The City of Birmingham wards of Edgbaston, Harborne, and Quinton.

1974–1983: The County Borough of Birmingham wards of Deritend, Edgbaston, Harborne, and Quinton.

1918–1974: The County Borough of Birmingham wards of Edgbaston, Harborne, and Market Hall.

1885–1918: The Municipal Borough of Birmingham ward of Edgbaston, part of Rotton Park ward, the local government district of Harborne, and part of the local government district of Balsall Heath.

South west of Birmingham city centre, this is a house and garden-rich and mostly middle-income constituency with limited social housing, featuring parks, Warwickshire's cricket ground and two grammar schools. It was a safe Conservative seat for decades, emphasised by solid Tory areas like Edgbaston itself and Bartley Green, but some areas, such as the more Labour-inclined Quinton and Harborne, have pockets of considerable deprivation and of low incomes, helping Labour hold the seat since 1997. It contains the University of Birmingham's main campus, and most of the student halls.

History[edit]

Summary of results

The political division elected Conservative candidates as its MP between 1898 and the 1992 elections inclusive. The 1997 victory of Stuart produced a 10% majority fractionally exceeded in percentage terms by her re-election in 2001 on a lower turnout, stretching her majority to 12.1%. The 2015 re-election of Stuart gave the seat the 30th-smallest majority of Labour's 232 seats by percentage of majority and represented an improvement on 2010.[4]

Other parties

UKIP's swing nationally was +9.5% in 2015, sufficient in most seats to achieve more than 5% of votes cast and therefore for the party's candidates to keep their deposits. Having fielded a candidate taking 1.7% of the vote in 2010, the 2015 result for UKIP's Short won him 8.3% more of the votes cast. Liberal Democrat and Green Party candidates forfeit kept their deposits.

Trivia

At the 1997 general election it was the ninth seat to declare and the first seat to be gained by Labour from the Conservatives[5] on a 10% swing, presaging the Labour landslide of that year. Edgbaston has returned a female MP since 1953, longer than any other constituency.[6] The sitting MP is Preet Gill. It has been classified as a marginal seat.[7]

Turnout has ranged from 78.8% in 1950 to 48% in 1918.
