Adam Storey McKinlay (1887 – 17 March 1950)[1] was a Scottish Labour Party politician. He was a Member of Parliament (MP) from 1929 to 1931, and from 1941 to 1950.

At the 1929 general election, McKinlay was elected as MP for Glasgow Partick. He was defeated in 1931 and was unsuccessful when he stood again in 1935.[2] He returned to the House of Commons when he won a by-election in on 27 February 1941 for the Dunbartonshire constituency. He was re-elected in 1945 and when that constituency was abolished at the 1950 general election, he was returned for the new West Dunbartonshire constituency, holding that seat until his death one month later, aged 63.
