BBC Profile:
The seat was created in 1974 and has been held since by Labour. Tony Lloyd, who has been MP since 1997 since moving from the Stretford seat, won a majority of 9,776 in 2005, after a 9.8% swing to the Liberal Democrats.

At the election, the seat gains the part-wards of Ardwick and Moss Side from Manchester Gorton and a ward and a part-ward from Blackley and Broughton. It loses a part-ward to Blackley and Broughton and Manchester Withington and three part-wards to Manchester Gorton.

The seat has a diverse ethnic makeup and is home to large Indian, Pakistani and West Indian communities, together with an African community, mainly from west Africa, but also in recent years from Somalia.
