Carol Ann Beaumont (born 6 October 1960) is a politician from New Zealand, first elected to represent the Labour Party through the party list vote in the 2008 election. Beaumont stood in the Maungakiekie electorate, finishing second in both 2008 and 2011. In the 2011 election she initially missed joining the current Parliament, her list ranking (22) sitting just above the cut-off due to Labour's reduced party vote. But in March 2013 Charles Chauvel's resignation saw her back into Parliament.

Beaumont stood for Labour in the Maungakiekie seat at the 2008 general election, finishing second to National's Sam Lotu-Iiga. The seat had previously been held by Labour's Mark Gosche. She was ranked 28th on Labour's party list and was elected to Parliament as a List MP.
In the 49th Parliament Beaumont was appointed Labour's spokesperson for Consumer Affairs, and associate spokesperson for Labour by Labour leader Phil Goff. In early 2010 she took over responsibility for Charles Chauvel's Credit Reforms (Responsible Lending) Bill, which had been drawn from the ballot in August 2009. The bill was defeated at its first reading in July 2010.
