From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William John (6 October 1878 – 27 August 1955) was a Welsh Labour Party politician, and a Member of Parliament (MP) for thirty years.

At the Rhondda West by-election, 1920, he was elected as MP for the safe Labour constituency of Rhondda West, and held the seat until he retired from the House of Commons at the 1950 general election.

In Winston Churchill's war-time coalition government, he served from 1942 to 1944 as Comptroller of the Household (i.e. a Government whip), and from 1944 to 1945 as a Lord of the Treasury.
