Vale John Beattie

Peter Gutwein,Premier

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Mr John Beattie.

Mr Beattie served as the Liberal Member for Franklin in the State Parliament from 1972-1989, and held the position of Chair of Committees during the Gray Liberal Government from 1982-1989.

In his retirement John was an active member of the Lindisfarne branch and was well-known to many.

I would like to acknowledge the support and contribution Mr Beattie made to the Liberal Party over his many years as a member.

On behalf of the Tasmanian Government, I extend my deepest condolences to Mr Beattie’s wife Melinda and his entire family.
