George Lansbury, (22 February 1859 – 7 May 1940) was a British politician and social reformer who led the Labour Party from 1932 to 1935. Education for the poor was one of Lansbury’s major concerns. Lansbury paved the way for the Attlee Government to ensure provisions of the Education Act 1944 were fully implemented, with free secondary education becoming a right for the first time!

Lansbury Drive, Hayes, Middlesex, was given his name; late 30s I believe.
