Political party Labour

William Noble Warbey (16 August 1903 – 6 May 1980) was a Labour Party politician in the United Kingdom.

William Warbey was born in the then newly created Metropolitan Borough of Hackney in London. He first entered the House of Commons in the Labour landslide at the 1945 general election, as Member of Parliament (MP) for Luton in Bedfordshire. However, at the 1950 general election he lost his seat to the Conservative Party candidate Charles Hill, the former "radio doctor".

Warbey re-entered Parliament at a 1953 by-election for the Nottinghamshire constituency of Broxtowe, following the death of sitting Labour MP Seymour Cocks. However, that constituency was abolished for the 1955 general election, when Warbey was returned for the new Ashfield constituency. He held that seat until his retirement at the 1966 election.

He died in Eastbourne aged 76.
