Clydebank & Milngavie
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
Although no longer famed for shipbuilding as it used to be Clydebank remains a name redolent of the area's heavy industrial heritage, and the image of "red Clydeside" is maintained in paler form by Labour's continued dominance here, even if their recent MPs have hardly shared the politics of Jimmy Maxton or even Jimmy Reid, the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders trade unionist who polled nearly 6,000 votes as recently as February 1974 as a Communist, opposing the closure of the shipyards.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Tony Worthington, one of five Englishmen in Scottish Labour-held seats, is one of Blairís ministerial rejects, sacked after one year of workmanlike service at the Northern Ireland Office. Tall, grey and once-targeted by Scots racists, he is an uncharismatic expert on foreign aid and human rights issues. He was born in 1941, educated at City of Lincoln, LSE and other universities, worked as a sociology lecturer at Jordanhill Education College in Glasgow, sat for long enough (13 years) on Strathclyde Council and inherited the seat in 1987. He has campaigned for asbestos compensation.
