Thomas James Mitchell, MP for Mid Ulster 1955
Mitchell was elected MP for Mid Ulster at the General Election held on 26 May 1955. At the
time of his election, however, he was in prison serving a 10-year sentence for treason 
felony. On 18 July 1955, the House of Commons voted 197-63 to nullify the result and call
a by-election. 
The by-election was held on 11 August 1955 and was again won by Mitchell, who increased
his majority from 260 at the General Election to 806 at the by-election. The losing 
candidate, Charles Beattie, petitioned against this result, and on 7 October 1955, the 
election result was overturned and Beattie was declared elected. Within a few months
however Beattie was declared to be ineligible to sit, since at the time of his election he was
a member of two panels and an appeals tribunal under Northern Ireland national insurance
legislation, which were viewed as being offices of profit under the Crown.
As a result of Beattie's disqualification, a second by-election was held on 8 May 1956. Once
again, and for the third time within a year, Mitchell was a candidate, but this time was 
defeated.  Mitchell stood as a candidate for Mid Ulster at the General Elections of 1959,
1964 and 1966, but was defeated on each occasion.
For a nearly exact parallel, see the note concerning Philip Clarke under 'Fermanagh and 
North Tyrone'.
