Constituency description

The seat contains some of the most startling divides in wealth and privilege in the whole of the capital, running as it does from the City and Westminster at its western extreme, to Tower Hamlets in the East End.

Working class council estates as well as the troubled Ford car plant at Dagenham feature in the eastern part of the seat, and the area’s social problems have spilled into racial tensions with the British National Party gaining some support here.

This constituency also experienced the Brick Lane nail bomb, in which the local Asian community was targeted.

Other areas in this GLA seat include Tower Hamlets, Bethnal Green, Bow and West Ham.

Parliamentary seats here include: Barking(Lab), Bethnal Green and Bow(Lab), Part of the Cities of London and Westminster (Con), Dagenham(Lab), East Ham (Lab), Poplar and Canning Town (Lab), and West Ham (Lab).
