John Taylor (22 July 1902 – 1 March 1962) was a British Labour Party politician who served as Member of Parliament for West Lothian.[1]

He was first elected at the 1951 general election, and his death in 1962 at the age of 59 caused a hotly contested by-election, in which William Wolfe of the Scottish National Party was beaten by Labour's Tam Dalyell.
