Albert Buckley DSO (10 April 1877 – 13 November 1965), was a British Conservative politician.

Buckley entered Parliament for Waterloo in the 1918 general election. He held office under Bonar Law as a Junior Lord of the Treasury from 1922 to 1923 and under Bonar Law and later Stanley Baldwin as Secretary for Overseas Trade from March to November 1923. However, as a proponent of Free Trade Buckley was in disagreement with Baldwin, and his local party withheld its support of him as a prospective candidate.[1] He retired at the 1923 general election and never returned to the House of Commons.

Buckley died in November 1965, aged 88.
