John Whitfield (politician)
Having unsuccessfully contested Hemsworth in 1979, Whitfield was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the normally Labour seat of Dewsbury in the Conservative landslide at the 1983 general election. However, he lost the seat to future minister Ann Taylor in 1987 and was unsuccessful in his bid to regain it in the 1992 general election.
