Eric John Sever (born 1 April 1943) is a former Labour Party politician in England.

Sever was elected Member of Parliament for Birmingham Ladywood in a by-election in 1977. He served until 1983, when he was deselected as Labour candidate in favour of Sir Albert Bore, but subsequent parliamentary boundary changes led to Bore being replaced by Clare Short who had been selected as candidate in the neighbouring constituency of Birmingham Handsworth which was largely merged with the Birmingham Ladywood constituency. Sever stood in Meriden, but lost by 15,018 votes.
