About Tam Dalyell

Sir Thomas Dalyell of the Binns, 11th Baronet, known as Tam Dalyell, was a Scottish Labour Party politician. Born on 9 August 1932, he was educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge and served as a Trooper in the Royal Scots Greys before commencing a career in teaching. He was elected to the House of Commons as Member of Parliament for West Lothan in 1962 and served in that capacity until 1983, when he was elected as Member of Parliament for Linlithgow, a seat he held until 2005. He 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 on English-only matters after political devolution. He died on 26 January 2017, aged 84.
