Thomas Scollan (1884[1]c. 1974[2]) was a Scottish trade unionist and Labour Party politician.

Scollan was an engineer, and an organiser for Distributive Workers.[2] He was President of the Scottish Trades Union Congress in 1934.[2]

He was elected at the 1945 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Western Renfrewshire,[3] defeating the sitting Unionist MP Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn.
