Description:
David Weitzman, QC (18 June 1898 – 6 May 1987) was a British Labour Party politician. For the five years leading up to his retirement in 1979, he was the last sitting British MP born in the nineteenth century, and the oldest member of the House of Commons.

Weitzman was educated at Hutchesons' Grammar School, Glasgow, Manchester Central School and Manchester University. He served in the Manchester Regiment in the First World War. After graduating he was called to the Bar (Gray's Inn) and became a member of the Northern Circuit. He contested Stoke Newington unsuccessfully at the 1935 general election but went on to win it in the 1945 election. For the 1950 election his seat was reconstituted as Hackney North & Stoke Newington and he went on to represent the constituency for a further 29 years. After his retirement, Robert Edwards became the oldest sitting British MP.
