First Elected::
08 May 1986
My career in politics has spanned more than 40 years since first being elected as a councillor in 1963. Between 1974 and 1983 I was MP for Bury and Radcliffe holding office as Private Parliamentary Secretary in the Department of Industry and Government Whip. I currently represent Tonge with the Haulgh ward on Bolton Council and have served as Executive Member for Social Inclusion and Community Safety and was also Bolton’s representative on Greater Manchester’s Police Authority and Fire Authority. A magistrate and former chairman of the Bolton Bench, I have served on Bolton Bury Training and Enterprise Council and North Manchester Business Link. I am married to Eileen. We have three children and five grandchildren. I am a school governor and a former local footballer, boxer and referee. My interests include sport, hill walking and Richard III. When we were the Mayor and Mayoress of Bolton, we had Bolton Sea Cadets, Bolton Hospice and Bolton Victim Support as local charities to benefit from funds raised during our year of office, 2005-2006.
