Historyedit

This seat was created for the 1997 general election and was abolished at the 2010 general election It was a marginal seat between the Labour and Conservative parties throughout its existence, and was the only seat gained by the Conservatives in the North West in the 2005 General Election

Boundariesedit

The City of Lancaster wards of Bulk, Castle, Caton, Ellel, John O'Gaunt, Scotforth East, and Scotforth West, and the Borough of Wyre wards of Breck, Brock, Calder, Carleton, Catterall, Duchy, Garstang, Hambleton, Hardhorn, High Cross, Norcross, Pilling, Preesall, Staina, Tithebarn, and Wyresdale

The Boundary Commission for England's proposals for parliamentary constituencies in Lancashire were completed in 2006 They proposed to split this seat into two1 As a result, Lancaster was attached to another part of Wyre borough, over the River Wyre to the fishing port of Fleetwood The new seat of Lancaster and Fleetwood represents the first time the two places have been linked for parliamentary reasons for many years

The other seat is the new Wyre and Preston North1 This seat has never been created before, and the bringing together of Garstang, Thornton, Poulton-le-Fylde and the Fulwood and northern rural areas of Preston is unprecedented
