I am very saddened to learn of the passing of the former Federal Member for Bendigo, Bruce Reid.
Mr Reid represented the Liberal Party in both the Victorian and Australian Parliaments with distinction. He served in the Victorian Legislative Council as the Member for Bendigo Province from 1976 to 1988 before being elected as the Federal Member for Bendigo in 1990.
Mr Reid served the people of Bendigo until August 1998, earning a reputation as a passionate and committed representative for regional Victoria.
I wish to convey my sincere condolences to Mr Reid’s family and friends as well as to his broader Liberal family.
