Liverpool Wavertree is a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

Boundaries

The constituency is one of five covering the city of Liverpool, and covers eastern parts of the city. It contains areas such as Broadgreen, Childwall, Old Swan and Knotty Ash as well as Wavertree itself.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in Merseyside, the Boundary Commission for England has created a modified Wavertree constitiuency.

The electoral wards used in this future version of Wavertree are:
*Childwall, Church, Kensington and Fairfield, Old Swan, Picton and Wavertree

History

The present Liverpool Wavertree constituency dates from 1997. Since then it has been held by
Jane Kennedy of the Labour Party. The Liberal Democrats are the main challengers to Labour, as is the case in other Liverpool constituencies.

An earlier Liverpool Wavertree constituency existed until 1983; this seat was a safe Conservative seat. While the Conservatives have fared badly in the new Wavertree constituency (polling under 7% in the 2005 general election), it is perhaps not a fair comparison, as the new constituency covers a different area, with more inner-city areas.
