MP faints from over-work
The 34-year-old Conservative MP for Finchley, Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, fainted in the House of Commons yesterday and had to return home. The cause was over-work. At her Farnborough home she said: "It is nothing serious—just complete over-tiredness. I had two fainting spells and just had to come home to rest." Mrs. Thatcher, a barrister, became an MP last year and she piloted the Public Bodies (Admission to Meetings) Bill through the House.
