People elected as MPs before the 1964 general election who are still alive

The Snow in the Summer or So-So has the list.

It is surprisingly long and contains many people - Robert Carr, Edward Short, Christopher Chataway, Edward Du Cann - you might not have realised were still with us.

Jeremy Thorpe remains oldest living elected Liberal parliamentarian. I wonder if there's an older peer.

The oldest living elected Liberal parliamentarian is George Mackie.

He did not get into the Commons until 1964, so is not in this list.
