Glasgow Shettleston
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
One of the safest of all Labour seats in Scotland, as shown by their 27 per cent majority over the SNP even in the Scottish Parliament elections of 1999, this is the inner-east seat of Glasgow, which now extends from Parkhead, the home of Celtic FC, well south of the Clyde to include famous but now depopulated neighbourhoods like the Gorbals.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
David Marshall is another low-profile Glaswegian Labour MP with all the usual accoutrements: a manual working past, in his case as a bus conductor, a spell on the local (Strathclyde) council, and a conservative (though in this case not Catholic driven) line on homosexuality and abortion. Disappeared into Commons committee chairmanships, he was born 1941 and educated at various high schools in Larbert, Falkirk, and Glasgow and can be counted a safe pair of chins.
