Moss Turner-Samuels (19 October 1888 – 6 June 1957)[1] was a Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected to the House of Commons at the 1923 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for the Barnard Castle constituency,[2] but lost his seat the following year in the 1924 election to the Conservative candidate, Cuthbert Headlam.[3]

He was returned to Parliament twenty years later, in the Labour landslide at the 1945 general election, defeating the long-serving Conservative Leslie Boyce in Gloucester.[4] He was re-elected at the next three general elections,[5] but died in office at Westminster in 1957, aged 68. At the subsequent by-election, his seat was retained for Labour by Jack Diamond.
