Roger Kenneth Evans (born 18 March 1947) is a British Conservative politician.

Evans first stood for Parliament, unsuccessfully, at Warley West in October 1974 and again in 1979, but he was beaten by Labour's Peter Archer each time.

Evans contested Ynys Môn in the 1987 election. It was a Conservative seat with a majority of 1,684 votes from the 1983 election, but the Conservatives lost the seat to Plaid Cymru.

Evans was elected Member of Parliament for Monmouth in 1992, winning the seat back from Labour's Huw Edwards who had defeated Evans in by-election the previous year. However, at the 1997 general election, Edwards retook the seat. Evans stood again in 2001 when he lost by 384 votes.

Evans, a barrister, was a junior Social Security minister from 1994 to 1997.
