Fred Simpson (politician)

Fred Brown Simpson (6 November 1886 – 23 September 1939). Was a Nottingham born Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected at the 1935 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Ashton-under-Lyne, defeating the Conservative MP John Broadbent by a majority of only 114 votes. Simpson died in office four years later, and in the by-election for his seat the Labour candidate William Jowitt was returned unopposed.
