The City of London by-election, 1940 was a by-election held on 5 February 1940 for the British House of Commons constituency of City of London, which covered the "Square Mile" which was the United Kingdom's traditional financial district.
In accordance with the war-time electoral pact, neither the Labour nor the Liberal parties fielded a candidate. The Conservatives did not defend the seat either, instead supporting the National candidate, Sir Andrew Rae Duncan, who had been brought in from industry to serve as President of the Board of Trade.
There being no other candidates, Duncan was returned unopposed.
