Scarborough and Whitby is one of 650 Parliamentary Constituencies in the UK with an electorate of just over 72,000. Many of them live in the historic coastal towns of Scarborough and Whitby. But the constituency is also home to many villages in the surrounding North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Employment and business in the area is characterized by tourism, farming and fishing.
Scarborough and Whitby Labour Party is a friendly and welcoming group of people campaigning to represent the interests of local people, business and public services.
Despite the outstanding beauty of the area, this can often disguise a housing crisis, threats to local health and education services, the precarious state of the local economy and lack of opportunities for young people. While currently held by the Conservatives, Scarborough and Whitby Constituency was held by Labour’s Lawrie Quinn who was a hard-working MP from 1997 until 2005. Scarborough Borough Council is led by Labour whose councilors are working hard to improve local services.
