Description

Jennie Lee is pictured here next to one of Edwin Landseer's lions in Trafalgar Square, London. The daughter of a coal miner, Jennie Lee (1904-1988) first entered parliament as Labour MP for North Lanark in 1929. After being defeated in the 1931 election, she stood as an Independent Labour candidate in 1935, a year after her marriage to Labour MP Aneurin Bevan (1897-1960). She stood again in 1943, but did not re-enter parliament until 1945, as the Labour MP for Cannock in Staffordshire. In 1964 Jennie Lee became the first Minister of Art.
