Politics and history of the constituency


  Results from FactBites:
 
Sian James MP - Swansea East Constituency (349 words)
The constituency is a microcosm of the whole country.
Swansea is a traditional maritime city, the constituency starts in the SA1 area and moves north, which once was an area on heavy industry, however this has now changed to significant retail outlets in the Hafod / Landore areas and across the Enterprise Park.
Unemployment in Swansea East is low at 3% (June 2006 figure), I hope this will continue to fall.
