- Maurice Foley (politician)
Maurice Anthony Foley (9 October 1925 – 8 February 2002) was a British Labour Party politician. He was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for West Bromwich at a by-election in 1963, and represented the constituency until his resignation from the House of Commons in 1973. His successor in the resulting by-election was the future Speaker of the British House of Commons, Betty Boothroyd.
From 1967 to 1968, Foley was Under-Secretary of State for the Navy. Before that, whilst serving as a junior government minister with special responsibility for immigrants, he featured in the launch (broadcast on 10 October 1965) of a new BBC TV programme for immigrants, called Apna Hi Ghar Samajhiye (meaning "Make Yourself at Home").
