Bognor Regis & Littlehampton
Conservative hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
One of a chain of safe Tory seats on the West Sussex coast, Labour could increase their share by fully 15pc in 1997 and win some council seats in Littlehampton itself, which has light industry, but even this would barely take them into a distant second place. The Sussex coast, apart from the Brighton Kempton and Pavilion constituencies, is scarcely known for a radical view of the world. The main town here is probably doomed to be forever asscociated with the alleged dying words of King George V which are scarcely complimentary. But it is Labour and Liberal Democrats who have cause to mutter, under their breath and discreetly, "bugger Bognor . . .".

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Nick Gibb won this new seat for the Conservatives in 1997. A Trade n 1946 and educated at Derby Grammar School, Bury, he has concentrated on the local issues of jobs, crime and education.
