My teacher gave 2001 reults by age, and, althogh it's the likelihood of a Voting-Behaviour-by-age question coming up is extremely low, does anyone know any 2005 or even 1997 results by age, or indeed factors such as Race, Locality, etc.?

Here's the information i was given: [2001 Election (%)]

AgeGroup Tory Labour
18-24 29 47
25-34 29 47
35-44 28 44 (plus Lib. Dem.
45-54 34 39 but let's be serious)
55-64 34 40
65+ 42 37

There was a great piece on stuff like this in my uni politics textbook...but it's like the pages have actually just disappeared from my book. =/
