Sheffield Hallam is a Parliamentary constituency covering the south west portion of the City of Sheffield, England. Formerly a safe Conservative seat, it is represented in the House of Commons by Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats since December 2007, who won the seat for the first time at the 2005 general election. It is the only seat in South Yorkshire not held by Labour .

Boundaries

Hallam constituency extends from Stannington in the north to Dore in the south and includes small parts of the city centre in the east. It includes the wards of Broomhill, Crookes, Dore and Totley, Ecclesall, and Fulwood.

The large majority of Hallam is rural, spreading in the west in to the Peak District National park. It also contains some of the least deprived wards in the country, has low unemployment and a high rate of owner ocupancy. The University of Sheffield and two campuses of Sheffield Hallam University are within the constituency, which has a large student population.

Hallam borders onto the constituencies of High Peak, North East Derbyshire, Sheffield Central, Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield Hillsborough.

The Boundary Commission's final recommendations for boundary reform (published 14/09/05) propose that Hallam lose Broomhill ward to Sheffield Central and gain Stannington from Sheffield Hillsborough, which is to be abolished. These changes are due to come into force at the next general election

The constituency should not be confused with the former Hallamshire constituency.

History

Prior to its creation Hallam was a part of the larger Sheffield Borough constituency, which was represented by two Members of Parliament (MPs). In 1885 the Redistribution of Seats Act, which sought to eliminate constituencies with more than one MP and give greater representation to urban areas, led to the break-up of the constituency into five divisions: each represented by a single MP. Hallam was one of these new divisions. Its first MP, the Conservative Charles Beilby Stuart-Wortley, had previously been an MP in the Sheffield constituency, elected for the first time in 1880.

Hallam is the wealthiest constituency in the north of England, and was long held by the Conservative Party. At the 1997 general election Richard Allan of the Liberal Democrats took the seat with an 18.5% swing. It is now the sixth safest Liberal Democrat seat in the UK.

Members of Parliament

The current Member of Parliament is Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats. he won the seat after the outgoing LibDem MP Richard Allan stood down at the 2005 general election. After Sir Menzies Campbell's resignation in October 2007 as leader of the Liberal Democrats, Clegg contested the resulting leadership election, and was elected leader on 18 December 2007.
