Thomas James Macnamara

Thomas James Macnamara PC (23 August 1861-3 December 1931), was a British teacher, educationalist and Liberal politician.

Macnamara was born in Montreal, Canada, and qualified as a teacher in 1876. He was active as a teacher until 1892, when he became editor of "The Schoolmaster". In 1900 he was elected to the House of Commons for Camberwell North, a seat he held until 1918, and then represented Camberwell North West until 1924. He served under Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman as Parliamentary Secretary to the Local Government Board from 1907 to 1908 and under H. H. Asquith and later David Lloyd George as Parliamentary and Financial Secretary to the Admiralty from 1908 to 1920 and was sworn of the Privy Council in 1911. In 1920 Lloyd George appointed him Minister of Labour, with a seat in the cabinet, a position he retained until the government fell in October 1922.

Macnamara died in December 1931, aged 70.
