The Stratford by-election, 1963 was a by-election held on 15 August 1963 for the British House of Commons constituency of Stratford-on-Avon in Warwickshire. The by-election was caused by the resignation of the constituency's Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP) John Profumo on 6 June 1963 after the Profumo Affair scandal. The result was a Conservative Party hold, with Angus Maude winning a massively-reduced majority of almost 3,470 votes. The by-election was the first of many to be contested by David Sutch, later known as "Screaming Lord Sutch".
