Wythenshawe and Sale East is a parliamentary constituency in the city of Manchester and the borough of Trafford. It returns one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, elected by the first past the post system.

The constituency has always been a safe Labour seat. The current MP is Mike Kane of the Labour Party who was elected at the 2014 by-election in February 2014. He succeeded Labour's Paul Goggins who died in January 2014, and who had held the seat since its inception in 1997.

Boundaries[edit]

1997-2010: The City of Manchester wards of Baguley, Benchill, Brooklands, Northenden, Sharston, and Woodhouse Park, and the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford wards of Brooklands, Priory, and Sale Moor.

2010–present: The City of Manchester wards of Baguley, Brooklands, Northenden, Sharston, and Woodhouse Park, and the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford wards of Brooklands, Priory, and Sale Moor.

The constituency of Wythenshawe and Sale East is one of three in the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford and one of five in the City of Manchester, encompassing three of the five electoral wards in Sale and all five wards of Wythenshawe. The constituency was created at the 1997 general election combining most of the former Manchester Wythenshawe constituency with parts of the Altrincham and Sale constituency.

Constituency profile[edit]

The seat broadly comprises two very contrasting areas - the massive post-war built council estate in Wythenshawe (once the biggest in Europe), eight miles south of Manchester city centre, and the more suburban, middle-class and affluent areas of Sale. Priory ward was Labour's strongest and safest seat in Sale, until 2015 when Labour Leader Andrew Western was nearly defeated by first time Conservative candidate Michael Taylor. They also have councillors in Sale Moor.

The Wythenshawe area has historically suffered from some severe social and economic problems (the former ward of Benchill was assessed as the most deprived in the country in the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2000).
