From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Duncan (8 June 1865 – 6 July 1933)[1] was a Labour Party politician in England.

He was elected at the 1906 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Barrow-in-Furness,[2] and held the seat until his narrow defeat at the 1918 general election by the Conservative Party candidate.[3]

He did not stand again in Barrow, but at the 1922 election, he stood in Clay Cross, winning the seat by a large majority from a divided Liberal Party.[3] He was re-elected at the next four general elections, and died in office in 1933, aged 68.
