John Gulland

John William Gulland (1864 – 26 January 1920)[1] was a British Liberal Party politician.

Gulland entered Parliament as Member for Dumfries Burghs at the 1906 general election.[2] He was a junior Lord of the Treasury from 1909 until 1915, when he was promoted to Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury (Chief Whip) upon the unexpected death of Percy Illingworth. However, the Coalition Government that formed in May resulted in his sharing the post with the Conservative Lord Edmund Talbot until Asquith's Liberals left the government in 1916.

He was made a Privy Counsellor in 1917. When his constituency was abolished in 1918, he contested Dumfriesshire, but was defeated by William Murray. He died two years later.
