Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

At the 1992 general election Scotland returned 72 MPs: 49 Labour, 11 Conservatives, 9 Liberal Democrats and 3 Scottish Nationalists. In terms of seats, there was only one change from the previous election in 1987 (Aberdeen South was won from Labour by the Conservatives). Two seats which had changed hands at by-elections during the 1987-92 Parliament returned to the party which had previously held them (Glasgow Govan from the SNP to Labour, and Kincardine and Deeside from the Liberal Democrats to the Conservatives).
