The Young Family Summary Profile

At the dissolution of Parliament on April 8th 1997, the Ealing Acton constituency disappeared. This was the result of boundary changes which reduced by 10 the number of MP's in London. Meanwhile, in November 1995, George had been adopted as prospective parliamentary candidate for North West Hampshire, where the sitting Member, Sir David Mitchell, had announced his decision to retire. George was elected Member of Parliament for North West Hampshire on 1st May 1997 with a majority of 11,551 votes.

He was re-elected on 7th June 2001 with an increased majority (12,009 votes) but on a
reduced turnout, giving him an increased share
of the total votes (50.1%). In the June 2005 General Election he again increased both majority (13,264)and share of the vote (50.7%).

There could hardly be two Conservative seats more different than compact inner-City, multi-cultural Ealing Acton and sprawling, rural and predominantly
prosperous North West Hampshire.
