Hanes bywgraffyddol

The Revd. David Morris was born on 28th January 1930 in Kidderminster, but adopted by a family in Llanelli. He initially worked in the steel and coal industries, gained a scholarship to Ruskin College, Oxford, and went on to study at University College, Swansea, before training at the United Theological College, Aberystwyth. He served as a Presbyterian minister and district and county councillor, before being elected MEP for Mid and West Wales in 1984. Following after boundaries changes he was elected MEP for South Wales West, but did not seek re-election in 1999 when Wales became a single, multi-member constituency. While an MEP he took a keen interest in overseas aid, and campaigned for regulation of the transport of live animals and nuclear waste. A pacifist and anti-nuclear campaigner, he was chair of CND Cymru 1990-2001 and with other activists formed Welsh Labour Grassroots in 2003. He died on January 24th, 2007.
