QUIZ: Name the 11 Liberal MPs in this 1967 photograph


Twelve Liberal MPs were elected at the 1966 general election. This photograph shows 11 of them.

Can you name them (saying where they appear in the line up, please) and the missing 12th man?

Featured on Liberal Democrat VoiceOver to you in the comments, readers.

Very impressive, but can you name the missing MP?

Russell Johnston.

It is a bit early for Russell to have been Brussels.

We should hear more about Alasdair Mackenzie the only Lib MP who opposed the abolition of the death penalty. I think he was anti EEC as well. A champion of a different world-Gaeldom.

None of the female persuasion, one notes.

Twelfth man: Russell Johnston.

[Second attempt to post this comment. Trying to work out what happened to the version posted last night.]

It is a tribute to the Liberal Party that they did not crack the whip to ensure all 12 MPs got in the photo....

Presumably Russell Johnston was taking the picture.
