From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir John Sydney Wardlaw-Milne (1879 – 11 July 1967) was a British Conservative Party politician.

He was elected at the 1922 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Kidderminster, and held the seat until his defeat at the 1945 general election. Wardlaw-Milne was often seen as being on the Right-Wing of The Conservative Party and during the tough Economic times of the early 1930s, Wardlaw-Milne recommended that free education should be abolished.

Vote of no confidence

During June-July 1943 Sir John was involved in an attempt to force Winston Churchill out in a vote of no confidence which was defeated on 1 July 1943.
