George Buchanan (politician)
Buchanan was vice-chairman of Glasgow Trades Council and sat on the city council from 1919 to 1923. At the 1922 general election he was elected to the House of Commons as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Gorbals division of Glasgow.
In 1932 Buchanan became chairman of the United Patternmakers Association of Great Britain, a position he held for sixteen years. He initially agreed with James Maxton's moving the ILP out of the mainstream Labour Party, but decided to leave them to rejoin Labour in 1939.
He died in 1955.
