Christopher Gordon "Chris" Miles (born 21 August 1947) is a former Australian politician. Born in Ulverstone, Tasmania, he was educated at the University of Tasmania and then the University of South Africa, becoming a teacher, traveller and sawmiller. In 1984, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Liberal member for Braddon. In 1992 he was one of a group of Coalition members of parliament who founded the Lyons Forum, a conservative ginger group.
On 11 March 1996, following the victory of the Coalition in the federal election of that year, Miles was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, John Howard. He held this position until 1998, when he was defeated in his seat of Braddon by Labor candidate Sid Sidebottom.
