Malcolm Irving Jones (born 25 August 1946) is a former Australian politician. Born in Chester, England, to Philip and Lena Mary Jones, he immigrated to Australia in 1974. He was an employee benefits consultant with his own company from 1981 to 1994. In 1983, he married Vivien, with whom he had a daughter and two sons.[1]

Jones was originally a member of the Liberal Party, serving as Branch President and Secretary of the Balgowlah Branch from 1994 to 1995. He was also a member of the Four Wheel Drive Association from 1994, and in 1995 left the Liberal Party to join the Outdoor Recreation Party. In 1999, as a result of strong preference flows from other parties, he was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Council. He resigned in 2003 under accusation of corruption and was replaced by Jon Jenkins.[1]
