South Suffolk Constituency Labour Party (CLP)
Welcome! We thought you might like to find out a little more about your local Labour Party. This is a brief introduction that we hope helps.
As you might guess it’s quite a large rural constituency. This link to the constituency map of South Suffolk gives a clear picture of all the villages and towns within it.
It’s been Conservative controlled since Tim Yeo created it as a Constituency in 1983. This Wikipedia link gives you the history of General Election results. Despite the national defeat Labour experienced in May 2015 locally we bucked the national trend by increasing our vote and vote share.
