Lewis Jones (politician)
A supporter of the National Government led by former Labour Party leader Ramsay MacDonald, he was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Swansea West at the 1931 general election, unseating the sitting Labour MP Howel Samuel. Jones was re-elected in 1935, (when The Times described his campaign as having been subject to "organised rowdyism") and was knighted in 1944 for political and public services, but was heavily defeated at the 1945 general election.
