Since 1957, this had been solid Tory country, held by just three MPs: Chester MacRae (1957-72), Robert Howie (1972-88) and Bird (1988-93). Scott unseated Bird by more than 8,000 votes. Scott hung on to power in a closer race in 1997 and in 2000 earned a third term by defeating Tory Raj Venugopal by 3,256 votes.
