Boundaries

The constituency covers the area around Grantham and Stamford in Lincolnshire. It roughly corresponds to the South Kesteven local government district. Most of the constituency was formerly in the Stamford and Spalding constituency. In late June 2007, the incumbent Conservative MP Quentin Davies announced he was defecting to the Labour Party, shortly before Gordon Brown was due to take over the position of Prime Minister from Tony Blair. Grantham is notable as being the home town of former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
