Would this have been the 1999 by election, brought about by the death of Roger Stott?

Mick...I don't know much about politics, but yes it was 1999
Was it Neil Turner who became the MP for Wigan ?. I would like to see some old photos of Alfred Goulding Transport lorries, especially from when they were on Pottery Road.
