He contested the seat at the 1945 general election but was unsuccessful. McFarlane won it three years later at a by-election in January 1948 with a majority of 395 votes, but was defeated at the subsequent general election in 1950. He contested the seat again in 1951, and stood for Glasgow Provan in 1955, losing fairly narrowly each time to the Labour Party candidates.
He was Director of J. & A. McFarlane, a hardware manufacturer business in Glasgow. He was awarded an O.B.E. in 1936 and was knighted in 1955.
