R.I.P. Sally Gray

Sad to read in today's Daily Telegraph obituaries of the death of the actress Sally Gray, aged 89.

Gray's best role, without doubt, was in Launder and Gilliat's marvellously atmospheric wartime murder mystery 'Green for Danger', in which she co-starred with the incomparable Alistair Sim, Trevor Howard, Leo Genn, Megs Jenkins and Rosamond John. If you've never seen this one, you're in for a real treat next time it's shown on Channel 4.
For you film buffs/politicos out there, here's a quick question. Rosamand John, who co-starred with Gray in Green for Danger, was married to which prominent Labour Party politician of the 1970s and 80s?
