Constituency description

Like most of the new GLA seats, Merton and Wandsworth can show any visitor massive contrasts in wealth, from inner city areas such as Battersea to prosperous Putney.

Historically the Tories have done well in local government here, Wandsworth once being their ‘flagship borough’, although high profile Tory causalities at the 1997 General Election included David Mellor.

Other areas here include Wimbledon, Tooting and Mitcham and Morden.

Parliamentary seats here include: Battersea(Lab), Mitcham and Morden (Lab), Putney (Lab), Tooting (Lab), and Wimbledon (Lab).
