William David Mudd (born 2 June 1933), known as David Mudd, is a British politician.

He was educated at Truro Cathedral School and was a member of the Tavistock Urban District Council from 1959 to 1961.[1]

He was Conservative MP for Falmouth and Camborne from 1970 until 1992, when he stood down. It was considered a surprise when he decided to stand in his old constituency in the 2005 general election as an independent candidate.[2] He came fifth with 2% of the vote.

In the 1970s David Mudd was a member of Mebyon Kernow as well as the Conservative Party.[3] He was also a newsreader on Westward Television in the 1970s.
