Michael Thomas Bass (1799-1884) served as liberal MP for Derby from 1847 until 1883. He favoured free trade and low taxation but he also supported improved living standard for the working class. In 1872, concerned at the long hours worked by railwaymen, he helped found the ASRS. [Ref: Palmer, Roy Working Songs p203]
