Vernon Edward Hartley Booth, QC, known as Hartley Booth (born 17 July 1946) is a former British politician.
Booth succeeded Margaret Thatcher as the Conservative Member of Parliament for Finchley from the 1992 general election until the constituency was abolished in the 1997 general election. He resigned from his position as a Parliamentary Private Secretary in February 1994 after revelations that he had had a "friendship" with a former young research assistant, Emily Barr, who went on to be a successful journalist and novelist.
Booth lost a bruising nomination battle with the Hendon South MP John Marshall for the new Finchley and Golders Green constituency, and was unsuccessful in finding another seat before the election. Marshall lost the 1997 general election to Labour's Rudi Vis.
