Edwin Scrymgeour (28 July 1866-1947), born in Dundee, also known as Neddy, was a Scottish MP for Dundee. He is the only person ever elected to the House of Commons on a prohibitionist ticket as the candidate of the Scottish Prohibition Party.
In the 1922 election, Scrymgeour and ED Morel , Labour, jointly ousted Winston Churchill, who had represented the city as a Liberal (at that point Coalition Liberal) since 1908. Dundee, at that time, was a single constituency with two elected MPs. Scrymgeour remained an MP for Dundee until the 1931 general election when he lost his seat.
