Paul Anthony Truswell (born 17 November 1955) is a British Labour politician, who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Pudsey since 1997.

On 8 July 2009, Truswell announced he would not stand again at the next general election. In a statement, he said "We all have to deal with life's many problems, but my recent traumatic car crash... has come on top of a period when I have found it increasingly difficult to undertake my heavy workload as an MP and to cope with a succession of family and personal issues, including illness, bereavement, and caring responsibilities. I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that I do not, at this time, have the physical and mental stamina to fulfil both of the hugely demanding roles of MP and parliamentary candidate in the run-up to the next general election."[1]
