Walter Johnson (politician)
Walter Hamlet Johnson (21 November 1917 - 12 April 2003) was a British Labour Party politician.
Johnson was born in Hertford.
Before being elected, Johnson stood several times for Parliament without success. In the 1955 General Election he fought Bristol West, but was defeated by the Conservative Cabinet Minister Walter Mockton. He contested South Bedfordshire in 1959, and a by-election at Acton in 1968 that was one of three Labour seats lost that day (in Johnson's case to the future Cabinet Minister Kenneth Baker).
He died in Haywards Heath aged 85.
