The Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations was a ministerial post in the United Kingdom Government from 1947 until 1966. The holder was responsible for assisting the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations in dealing with British relationships with members of the Commonwealth of Nations (its former colonies).

After 1966 the post was merged with the Minister of State for the Colonies and became the Minister of State for Commonwealth Affairs.
