George Lambert, 1st Viscount Lambert, PC (25 June 1866 – 17 February 1958) was a long-serving British Member of Parliament (MP).

Lambert was first elected as Liberal MP for South Molton at a by-election in 1891. He was Civil Lord of the Admiralty 1905-1915. He lost his seat at the 1924 to the Conservative Cedric Drewe, but regained it at the 1929 general election. Although he began his parliamentary career as a Liberal, in 1931 Lambert had become a National Liberal supporting the Conservative Party, following a long period criticising David Lloyd George and opposition to the Labour Party.

Lambert was made a Privy Counsellor in 1918. He was created Viscount Lambert when he stepped down as an MP in July 1945, after 48 years, 348 days in the House of Commons, the fifth longest-serving MP of the 20th century. At the 1945 general election, his son George replaced him as MP for South Molton, later Torrington and succeeded him as Viscount Lambert.
