  House of Commons Hansard Debates for 17 May 2005 (pt 16)
My immediate predecessor, David Chidgey, whose contribution to the House and service to his constituents is soon to be recognised in ennoblement and transfer to another place, also retained his by-election win at the 1997 election with a slender majority and then won substantially more comfortably in 2001.
Eastleigh constituency is a varied part of Hampshire.
On the plus side, Eastleigh has continued to grow as a logistic centre, thanks in part to its ideal position near the junction of the M3 and M27, and with Southampton airport, which is really Eastleigh airport.

 Newsmedianews | Stephen Milligan MP
Stephen Milligan, a former MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire, England and at the time a Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Arms Minister Jonathan Aitken, died in early 1994.
I was the last journalist known to have spoken in depth with Stephen Milligan the former MP for Eastleigh in Hampshire, England, in relation to his private life and aspirations, shortly before his death and the resulting internationally publicised bizarre sex scandal immediately associated with it.
Following what was to prove Mr Milligan’s final meeting with railway workers and a tour of the Eastleigh maintenance depot, it became clear to me that he was moved by the arguments of the workers and was in something of a quandary over the issues.

 News | Telegraph
There are about 30 constituencies which were virtually guaranteed to return a Conservative MP until 1992 but have been taken by the Lib Dems.
Lib Dem strategists are bullish, but privately admit that it is the constituencies they won at by-elections and those where an existing MP is standing down where they are most vulnerable.
The battle for Eastleigh certainly has all the hallmarks of a close and potentially bitter personal contest.
