Description Clwyd South was one of the new Welsh constituencies created in 1997. Many of the extra voters came largely from the industrial areas of Wrexham, which helped to reassert Labour control. Much of the seat had been in Clwyd South-West, which was held by the Conservatives in the 1983 landslide but reverted to Labour in 1987, and Martyn Jones has held it ever since. The high-profile candidature of Boris Johnson, editor of the Spectator and now MP for Henley, failed to revive their vote in 1997. Although Martyn Jones' vote slipped in 2001, he still commands a majority of nearly 9,000, a comfortable 26.6% of the vote. Plaid Cymru slipped to third behind the Conservatives in the 2001 general election. Clwyd South is the home of the annual International Eisteddfod at Llangollen. And nestled in the heart of the beautiful Dee Valley, the area receives plenty of valuable tourist income.
