Originally elected Member of Parliament for Bebington in 1970, Cockeram lost his seat (which he fought unsuccessfully as the renamed Bebington and Ellesmere Port) in the both 1974 general elections. Elected for Ludlow in 1979, he suddenly retired weeks before the 1987 general election following allegations of multiple share applications for British Telecom and British Gas.
