William Charles John Irving (1 April 1892 – 15 March 1967) was a British Labour Co-operative politician.

After the 1945 general election, Robert Morrison, the Labour Member of Parliament (MP) for Tottenham North was elevated to the peerage as Baron Morrison. Irving was selected as the Labour candidate for the resulting by-election, which he won with a majority of 5,522 over the Conservative Party candidate, Petre Crowder.

When the Tottenham North constituency was abolished for the 1950 general election, Irving was returned for the new Wood Green constituency, and held the seat until his retirement at the 1955 general election.
