From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Albert Bright (1848 – 11 November 1924)[1] was an English Liberal Unionist Member of Parliament (MP) in England. He was the son of the Liberal reformer John Bright.

John Albert was elected to the House of Commons as MP for Birmingham Central at a by-election in 1889 following the death of his father.[2] He was re-elected at the 1892 general election, but did not stand for re-election in 1895.[2] At the 1900 general election, he broke with the Liberal Unionists and stood unsuccessfully as a Liberal Party candidate in the Montgomery Boroughs.[2]

He returned to Parliament at the 1906 general election, when he won a seat in Oldham,[3] but stood down at the January 1910 election.[2]
