Constituency description

Greenwich and Lewisham includes a wide variety of different areas, including the area where black teenager Stephen Lawrence was killed in a race-related attack in 1993.

Attempts have been made to regenerate parts of the area, including the building of the Millennium Dome, but development is still an issue here.

Lewisham has one of the UKs highest concentrations of black people. Among its local MPs is one Nick Raynsford, the government minister who pushed through Parliament the legislation to set up the new mayor and assembly.

Parliamentary seats here include: Eltham(Lab), Erith and Thamesmead (Lab), Greenwich and Woolwich (Lab), Lewisham and Deptford (Lab), Lewisham East (Lab) and Lewisham West (Lab)
