The LNP has paid tribute to one of its longest serving federal members, Hon. Bruce Scott MP, who today announced his intention to retire at the next election.

Among his many achievements, Mr Scott will be remembered as a champion for the bush and for our war veterans.

Bruce Scott was first elected as the Member for Maranoa in 1990 and earlier this year celebrated his 25th anniversary in Federal Parliament.

LNP President, Bruce McIver, said Mr Scott has been a dedicated servant to the people of his electorate and Australia, throughout his career.

“Bruce has enjoyed a distinguished parliamentary career which has seen him gain the respect of all sides of politics,” Mr McIver said.

“He was Assistant Minister for Defence and Minister for Veterans’ Affairs in the Howard Government as well as holding Shadow Ministry positions in Opposition.

“As Minister, he introduced several policies to assist our war veterans as well as establishing a number of memorials around the world to acknowledge our fallen soldiers, including the commemorative area for the Gallipoli Dawn Service at Anzac Cove.

“Many of Bruce’s roles allowed him to focus on regional and rural areas of our country, which has always been his passion,” Mr McIver said.

“Prior to entering parliament we was a successful grazer and served as President of Queensland Merino Stud Sheep Breeders Association (1983-86), President of the Maranoa Graziers’ Association (1987-90) and President of the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders (1989-91).

“Aside from his parliamentary contribution, Bruce Scott has been a significant contributor to his Party from an early age and served as President of The Nationals, Queensland in 2005-06.

“On behalf of all LNP members, I thank Mr Scott for his dedication and contribution to his party and the people of Australia.

“We wish him and his family for the very best for the future.”
