We are pretty stuck now though, aren't we Gadget. Hopefully when your friend confirms Patricia's details further, we can move forward a little more.

As Gadget mentioned earlier, nothing really showng for a McLaughlin as MP, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenock_(UK_Parliament_constituency)  He could have been a Council Councillor or have held a similar post?
