Bert Hazell: The Oldest Surviving Ex MP Has Died
The oldest living ex MP has died. Bert Hazell was Labour MP for North Norfolk, the seat I stood for at the last election from 1964 to 1970. He was 101 years old and died last week. The Yorkshire Evening Post has an account of his life HERE. And the Diss Mercury has more HERE.
It is true to say that they don't make 'em like that anymore. He is still very fondly remembered in North Norfolk.
