John Richard Thomas (8 March 1897 – 4 July 1968)[1] was a British Labour Party politician of Welsh provenance,[citation needed] and a Chartered Accountant.

He was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Dover at the 1945 general election,[2] but did not contest the 1950 general election,[3] when his seat was won by the Conservative candidate John Arbuthnot.
