Thomas Isaac Mardy Jones (21 January 1879 – 26 August 1970) was a British politician and miner. The son of a Welsh miner, who later died in the mines, Jones rose up the ranks of the Labour Party to become Member of Parliament for Pontypridd in 1922.

Rail Vouchers[edit]

In December 1930 Jones gave his wife and 12-year-old daughter a pair of Commons rail vouchers, which they were caught using. Jones was taken to court and fined. He was de-selected by his local Labour Party but contested the 1931 General Election as an Independent Labour candidate. He lost his seat, only polling 1,110 votes and finished in third place.
