In the 1945 landslide general election, Middleton was elected Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton, gaining the seat from the Conservatives, after the retirement of her predecessor Nancy Astor, Viscountess Astor.
Lucy Middleton was an active member of Wimbledon Labour Party when the idea of publishing a book on the contribution of women to the labour movement was put forward as a way to celebrate International Women's Year. The Labour Party agreed to publish the book, and Lucy Middleton edited the essays of the 9 younger women she had invited to contribute. When finished the Labour Party General Secretary decided there was no money to publish the book, but Croom Helm agreed to publish it as "Women in the Labour Movement, the British experience" in 1977.
