Sir (Charles) Leolin Forestier-Walker, 1st Baronet KBE (6 May 1866 – 13 May 1934[1]) was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.

At the 1918 general election, he was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Monmouth in Wales and held the seat until his death in 1934, aged 68.[2][3][4][5] At the consequent by-election, the Monmouth seat was held by the Conservatives.[6] In addition to being an MP, he was also a Forestry Commissioner from 1920–1929.[7] In 1921 he was also appointed a Mental Health Commissioner, under the terms of the Mental Deficiency Act, 1913.[8]

Forestier-Walker was created a Baronet (of Rhiwderin in the County of Monmouth)[9] in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in the 1924 King's Birthday Honours.[7] In the following year's list, he was honoured as a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE).[10] In 1934 he was created a Knight of Justice in the Venerable Order of Saint John.[11]
