HistoryEdit

Stockport was created as a two-member constituency by the Reform Act 1832. It survived as such until 1950, when it was split into single-member seats of Stockport North and Stockport South.

The single Stockport seat was recreated in 1983 on a more central ambit, returning one member, with the remainder of the ex-county borough forming part of the new Denton and Reddish seat.

Prominent members

Edward William Watkin was a railway entrepreneur, who helped to fund and plan lines across Britain, in Canada and, to a lesser extent, in the USA.

George Whiteley became later in his tenure for Stockport Chief Whip between 1905 and 1908 in the Liberal administrations of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman and H. H. Asquith.

In the 21st century, Ann Coffey was PPS to the Chancellor of the Exchequer while this role was held by Alastair Darling.

Constituency profileEdit

The historic town at the centre of the seat has links to Manchester city centre and access to the M6. The Liberal Democrats have in local elections been strongest in Davenport and Cale Green and Manor, and the Conservatives in Heatons North. The Labour Party have been strongest in the other wards. Registered jobseekers were, in November 2012, higher than the national average of 3.8%, and regional average of 4.4%, at 4.9% of the population.[2]
