Sir Austin Hudson, 1st Baronet

Sir Austin Uvedale Morgan Hudson, 1st Baronet (6 February 1897 – 29 November 1956) was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was elected at the 1922 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Islington East, but lost the seat at the 1923 election. He returned to Parliament at the 1924 general election when he won the Hackney North seat from the Liberal Party MP John Harris. He held that seat until the Labour landslide at the 1945 general election, when he lost by a large margin to Labour's Henry Goodrich.

Hudson was returned to the House of Commons at the 1950 general election for the new Lewisham North, which he represented until his death in 1956, aged 59.

In Ramsay MacDonald's National Government 1931-1935 he was a Lord of the Treasury (government whip, and in the second National Government he was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport from 1935 to 1939, and then Civil Lord of the Admiralty from 1939 to 1940. He was reappointed to the Admiralty in Winston Churchill's war-time Coalition Government, and left the government in March 1942. He returned to office briefly in 1945, as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Fuel, Light and Power in the Caretaker Government 1945 which held office from May to July that year.

He was made a baronet in July 1942, of North Hackney, in the County of Middlesex.
