DESCRIPTION: South West
The South West retains all its seven seats at the 2004 elections, unlike most of the UK regions which are losing some of their MEPs due to the EU's enlargement. Geographically it stretches 260 miles from Lands End to the tiny village of Mickleton in North Gloucestershire. The Isles of Scilly are also included in this constituency, as is Gibraltar. It will be the first time that a British overseas territory has voted as part of a UK area.
