From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hugh Murnin (1865-1932) was an English politician, Labour MP for Stirling and Falkirk Burghs from 1922 to 1923, and from 1924 to 1931.

Murnin left elementary school aged nine, entered the mines,[1] and worked his way up to become a leader of the Scottish miners.

A Roman Catholic, Murnin apparently suggested the formation of a centrist Scottish Catholic party in 1912.[2] Like Joseph Sullivan (1866-1935), another Catholic miner, Murnin first managed to be elected to Parliament in 1922.[3]
