William Baxter (4 December 1911 - 20 April 1979) was a British
Labour Party politician, building contractor and farmer. He was a
conscientious objector in the Second World War. Having served as a
councillor, he was Member of Parliament (MP) for West Stirlingshire
from 1959 until he stood down at the October 1974 general election.
He was asked to stand down by his Constituency Labour Party after
the indecisive election of February 1974, when he called for an
all-party government of national unity, and suggested that the Duke
of Edinburgh could chair its meetings. In 1961, as a protest
against bipartisan support for British nuclear weapons, he voted
against the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, and British Army Estimates
in the House of Commons, and was suspended from the Labour Party
Whip from March 1961 until May 1963.
