Malcolm Kemp Savidge (born 9 May 1946 in Surrey, England) is a politician in the United Kingdom. He was Labour Party member of Parliament for Aberdeen North, in Scotland, from the 1997 general election until he stood down at the 2005 general election.
Educated at Wallington County Grammar School and then Aberdeen University, he was previously a mathematics teacher for 24 years and was a member of Aberdeen City Council. In 1991, he unsuccessfully contested the Kincardine and Deeside by-election, coming fourth, and he was beaten fighting the seat at the general election the following year.
He was elected for Aberdeen North in the Labour landslide of 1997.
The Sunday Working (Scotland) Act 2003 was the result of a Private Member's Bill raised by Savidge during 2003. The Act extended to Scotland the rights enjoyed by shopworkers in England and Wales to refuse to work on a Sunday.
When the number of Parliamentary constituencies in Scotland was reduced for the 2005 general election, the former Aberdeen Central constituency was mostly absorbed into an expanded Aberdeen North. The Aberdeen Central MP Frank Doran was chosen as the Labour candidate for Aberdeen North, and Savidge did not contest the 2005 election.
