Sir Thomas Dalyell of the Binns, 11th Baronet (9 August 1932 – 26 January 2017), known as Tam Dalyell, was a Scottish Labour Party politician who was a Member of Parliament in the House of Commons from 1962 to 2005. He represented West Lothian from 1962 to 1983, then Linlithgow from 1983 to 2005. Affectionately known as the Father of the House and a great family man, Tam was equally devoted to the arts and the sciences and is particularly well known for his formulation of what came to be known as the ‘West Lothian question’, on whether non-English MPs should be able to vote upon English-only matters after political devolution.
