The present Nottingham East constituency was created in 1974, and first elected Jack Dunnett who had been Labour MP for the abolished Nottingham Central seat. Michael Knowles regained it for the Conservative Party in 1983, when some of the seat was transferred to the new Nottingham South constituency in boundary changes. Knowles held the seat with a reduced majority in 1987, but John Heppell gained it for Labour in 1992, and held the seat until he retired in 2010. It is presently held by Chris Leslie, initially for Labour Co-operative and later for Change UK. Leslie previously represented his hometown constituency of Shipley in West Yorkshire, from 1997 until losing his seat to Philip Davies in 2005. During his first term he joined the front benches serving as a junior minister as part of the Tony Blair Government and was briefly Shadow Chancellor after the 2015 general election.
