Mungo David Malcolm Murray, 7th Earl of Mansfield and Mansfield (9 August 1900 – 2 September 1971), styled Lord Scone from 1906 to 1935, was a Scottish Unionist Party politician.

Mansfield was the son of Alan Murray, 6th Earl of Mansfield and Mansfield, and his wife Margaret Mary Helen, daughter of Rear-Admiral Sir Malcolm MacGregor, 4th Baronet. He entered Parliament for Perth in 1931, a seat he held until 1935, when he succeeded his father and entered the House of Lords. He was also Governor of the Edinburgh and East of Scotland College of Agriculture from 1925 to 1930, Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland from 1961 to 1962 and Lord-Lieutenant of Perthshire from 1960 to 1971.

Lord Mansfield and Mansfield married Dorothea Helena, younger daughter of the British diplomat Sir Lancelot Carnegie, in 1928. He died in September 1971, aged 71, and was succeeded in his titles by his only son William, who also became a Conservative politician. The Countess of Mansfield and Mansfield died in 1985.
