Murray John Finlay Luxton

SPEAKER: I regret to inform the House of the death on 16 November 2021 of the Hon Murray John Finlay (John) Luxton CNMZ, QSO, who represented the electorates of Matamata and Karapiro between 1987 and 1999, and continued to serve as a list member until 2002. During his membership of this House, he held a number of ministerial positions, including Minister of Commerce, Minister of Māori Affairs, Minister of Police, and Minister of Industry. I desire on behalf of this House to express our sense of the loss we have sustained and our sympathy with the relatives of the late former member. I now ask members to stand with me and observe a period of silence as a mark of respect to his memory.

Honourable members stood as a mark of respect.
