Morecambe and Lancaster MPs retain seats


December 13, 2019

The MPs for Lancaster and Morecambe both retained their seats at the General Election.

Cat Smith was re-elected in Lancaster and Fleetwood, with David Morris (pictured with his team) also victorious in Morecambe and Lunesdale.

Ms Smith (Labour) won her third term as MP albeit with a reduced majority of 2,380.

Mr Morris (Conservative) won his fourth term with an increased majority of 6,354.

The results came on a good night for the Tories and a bad one for Labour nationwide.

Boris Johnson will continue as Prime Minister after his party won a clear majority as Labour lost seats, particularly in the North and the Midlands.

The Scottish National Party also had a strong showing, winning 45% of the votes in Scotland.
