From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Samuel Potts (12 August 1861 – 28 April 1938) was a Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom who served a Member of Parliament (MP) for twelve years between 1922 and 1938.

Born in Bolton, Lancashire, Potts was elected as MP for Barnsley at he 1922 general election, and held the seat at three further elections in the 1920s. When Labour split at the 1931 general election over Ramsay MacDonald's formation of a National Government, he narrowly lost his seat to the National Liberal candidate Richard John Soper.

Potts was comfortably re-elected at the 1935 general election, but died in office in 1938, in Barnsley, aged 76.
