From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harry Nuttall (1849 - 1924) was a British Liberal politician, and Member of Parliament for Stretford from 1906 to 1918.

Nuttall was born in 1849 in Manchester, and attended Owens College. He was an export and import merchant, and President of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce in 1905.[1]

Nuttall unsuccessfully contested the Stretford constituency at 1900 general election.[2] At the following general election in 1906, he again stood as the Liberal candidate at Stretford constituency, this time unseating the Conservative MP, Charles Cripps. This followed intensive canvassing of the 5,000 Manchester freeholders eligible to vote in the division.[1] He held the seat at the next two general elections until retiring in 1918.[3][4]

Harry Nuttall died suddenly on September 25, 1924.[5]
