Tributes paid to former Prime Minister and Merseyside MP Harold Wilson on birth centenary

On 100th anniversary of his birth, tributes have been paid to Harold Wilson, the two-time Labour Prime Minister and former MP for Huyton.

Knowlsey MP George Howarth said Wilson's government of the 1970's ushered "an era where people were more comfortable with themselves", praising his record on rights for women and workers.

Harold Wilson, who died in 1995 aged 79, won four general elections and was prime minister from 1964 to 1970 and from 1974 to 1976.

He was MP for Huyton in Liverpool from 1950 to 1979. There is a permanent statue of Mr Wilson in the town, which was unveiled by former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair a decade ago.
