15 August 2017 / Blogs & Features

The former Labour MP Kevin McNamara has died aged 82 after a short illness. McNamara, who represented Hull North in Westminster from 1966 to 2005, was born in Liverpool. During his career McNamara held a number of senior roles, he chaired select committees and held portfolios in opposition including shadow secretary of state for Northern Ireland between 1987 and 1994. McNamara had a strong reputation for promoting human rights and being an independent and courageous thinker, it was these qualities which drew his interest to the plight of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
