Oxford West and Abingdon is a parliamentary constituency in the House of Commons.[n 1] It has been represented since 9 June 2017 by Layla Moran, a member of the Liberal Democrats. Her predecessor between 2010 and the 2017 general election was Nicola Blackwood, a Conservative.[n 2]

History[edit]

The constituency was created in 1983 on the division of the former constituency of Oxford taking approximately half of its content and an eastern part of the simultaneously abolished Abingdon seat.

The Conservative John Patten (MP for Oxford in the 1979–83 Parliament), held the seat from its creation, and remained the constituency MP until he retired in 1997. The seat was gained by the Liberal Democrat, Dr Evan Harris, who held the seat for thirteen years until the 2010 General Election, when the Conservative Nicola Blackwood retook the seat in one of the most marginal results of that election. Blackwood held the seat until the 2017 general election when she was defeated by Liberal Democrat Layla Moran.

Economic profile[edit]

The constituency includes the town of Abingdon, the village of Kidlington, and the western and northern parts of the city of Oxford, as well as a minority of the colleges of the University of Oxford – the constituency covering the rest of the city being Oxford East. At the end of 2010 unemployment was the fifth lowest of the 84 South East constituencies (measure used: claimant count), at 1.2% compared to a mean of 2.45%.[2] The area has rapid transit connections to London, Reading and the commercial heart of Oxford, has large business and research parks and a choice of two major railway stations, Oxford and Didcot Parkway.

Boundaries[edit]

1983–1997
The District of Vale of White Horse wards of Abbey, Caldecott, Cumnor, Fitzharris, Hinksey, Kennington, Northcourt, Ock, Radley, St Helen Without, and Sunningwell and Wootton, and the City of Oxford wards of Central, Cherwell, North, South, West, and Wolvercote.
