George Buchanan (politician)
Buchanan was vice-chairman of Glasgow Trade Council and sat on the city council (1919-1923). He was elected as a Member of Parliament in the 1922 General Election to represent Gorbals in the House of Commons.
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.
