Tynemouth
Labour hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
It is amazing to think that this north eastern seat was held by the Conservatives, in the formidable shape of Dame Irene Ward, even in 1966 when Labour won an overall majority of 100. They may well match this national showing next time, but if so Alan Campbell should be returned; the Tories have done very well in local elections for North Tyneside council recently, in wards such as Monkseaton and Seatonville, Tynemouth, St Mary's and Whitley Bay, but in this case that may well be a result of municipal factors.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Alan Campbell won the seat for Labour in 1997. He is a schoolteacher born in 1957, educated at Blackfyne Secondary School, Consett and at Lancaster, Leeds and Newcastle Universities. No great troubler of the scorers, he has focused on local concerns and on the importance of European funding, and expressed reservations about moves towards PR voting.
