From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michael Wolfgang Laurence Morris, Baron Naseby, PC (born 25 November 1936) is a British Conservative Party politician.

Born in London, he was first elected to the House of Commons at the February 1974 general election, representing Northampton South. His majority was only 179 votes in February 1974, and 141 votes in October 1974. After 1983 boundary changes turned the seat into a safe Conservative seat. He was unexpectedly defeated (by 744 votes) in the 1997 general election, when the Labour Party under Tony Blair won a landslide victory.

From 1992, Morris held the non-voting position of Chairman of Ways and Means and Deputy Speaker, and after the election he accepted a life peerage as Baron Naseby, of Sandy in the County of Bedfordshire on 28 October 1997.[1]
