Allan Ralph Rogers (born 24 October 1932) is a Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom. He was Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for South East Wales from 1979 to 1984, and Member of Parliament (MP) for Rhondda in Wales from 1983 until he stepped down at the 2001 general election.[1][2][3][4]

Parliamentary career[edit]

During his time as an MP, Rogers served on the Welsh Affairs Committee, Public Accounts Committee and the European Scrutiny Committee.

The Guardian reported that he was being offered a peerage in return for another candidate taking his seat, as it is one of Labour's safest, an offer which he allegedly rejected.[5][6]
