History

Liverpool Walton is one of the Labour Party's safest seats, with Labour polling over 70% of the vote in every general election since 1992,though for many years it was regarded as a reasonably safe Conservative seat;until 1964,Labour had only gained Walton once,in their landslide victory in 1945;the Conservatives have struggled to get 6% in recent elections. From 1964 until his death in 1991, the seat was held by the notable left-winger Eric Heffer; the subsequent by-election was won by Peter Kilfoyle who has held the seat since then.
