Sir Arthur Douglas Dodds-Parker has died. Who, you may well ask? He was Conservative MP for Banbury 1945-59 and Cheltenham from 1964-74. He was a Foreign Office Minister during Suez. He was 97 when he died.
He was one of the last surviving members of the 1945-50 Parliament. A reader has emailed me to ask if I can think of any other people who are still alive who were in that Parliament. Michael Foot and John Freeman are the only two my correspondent can think of. Can you think of any others who were elected in 1945 who are still alive today?
