|This article needs additional citations for verification. (May 2008)|
At the 1964 general election he was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Gravesend in Kent, a marginal seat which was normally won by the party forming the government. Indeed, Murray held the seat until it was regained by the Conservatives in 1970, the year Edward Heath became Prime Minister.
From 1969 to 1970, he was a junior minister in Harold Wilson's government, as Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport, under Minister of Transport Richard Marsh.
After leaving the House of Commons, Murray was given a life peerage on 28 June 1976 as Baron Murray of Gravesend, of Gravesend in the County of Kent. He died in 1980, at the age of 50 whilst watching his beloved Millwall. He was also President of Gravesend and Northfleet and the North Kent Sunday Football League.
