The House of Commons' oldest MP, Piara Khabra, has died aged 82. He had been the Labour MP for Ealing Southall since the 1992 general election.
Piara Khabra ran a mile for Sport Relief in 2006
He was a member of the constitutional affairs select committee and had a special interest in India.
His researcher Julian Bell said he was "remarkable servant of the people".
He said: "At an age when most people had long since retired he was still energetically tackling individual and constituency problems."
"His service and political wisdom will be sadly missed."
Mr Khabra had already announced his decision to retire at the next general election, and a candidate is to be selected from an all-women short list.
He came to Britain in the 1950s from India. He was a teacher and Labour councillor before his election to Westminster, and was also involved with the Indian Workers Association in Southall.
