Rt Hon W E Gladstone MP - 63a - no 'MP' on mat

Midlothian's most famous MP was W.E. Gladstone, Prime Minister and the Grand Old Man of Liberalism, who represented Edinburghshire from 1880-1895. It may have been the Gladstone legacy, or the fact that the Scottish Miners were among the last organised workers to break their ties with the Liberals, but it was not until the breakthrough general elections of 1922 and 1923 that Labour MPs were first returned from what is now Midlothian.
