Who was Muriel Nichol?

Muriel Edith Nichol JP, née Wallhead, was a Labour Party politician in England.

The daughter of Richard Wallhead, she was married with one son, and worked as a teacher before entering parliament. She served as Chair of Welwyn Garden City Urban District Council from 1937 to 1945.

At the 1935 general election she stood unsuccessfully in the Bradford North constituency in West Yorkshire, losing by a wide margin to the sitting Conservative Party Member of Parliament Eugene Ramsden. In the Labour landslide at the 1945 general election, she unseated Ramsden, winning the seat with a majority of 3,444.

After boundary changes for the 1950 general election, she lost her seat to the Conservative and National Liberal Party candidate, William Taylor.
