From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert Richardson (1 February 1862 – 28 December 1943) was a Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected at the 1918 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Houghton-le-Spring in County Durham, defeating the sitting Liberal MP Thomas Edward Wing. Richardson held the seat until the 1935 general election, when Labour split over budgetary policy and its leader Ramsay MacDonald left the party to form a National Government. His Conservative Party successor Robert Chapman served only one term in Parliament, as Labour regained the seat at the 1935 general election; but Richardson did not stand again after his defeat.
