George Thomas, 1st Viscount Tonypandy (1909-1997) was a British Labour politician. He was Member of Parliament for Cardiff Central in Wales from 1945 to 1983.

Secretary of State for Wales from 1968 to 1970, he presided over the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernarvon Castle in 1969.

During Thomasí term of office as Speaker of the House of Commons from 1976 to 1983, the first broadcasting of Parliamentary proceedings brought him unprecedented public attention, but he proved more impartial than party colleagues had expected. In 1983 he retired and was created Viscount Tonypandy, one of the last creations of a hereditary peerage.
