Hon Henry Robert Lapwood OBE

Madam SPEAKER: I regret to inform the House of the death on 26 April 2007 of the Hon Henry Robert (Harry) Lapwood OBE, who represented the electorate of Rotorua from 1960 to 1978. He was a senior whip from 1970 to 1974, and Minister of Tourism and Minister in charge of Publicity and of the Government Printing Office from 1975 to 1978. 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 for his memory.

  • Honourable members stood as a mark of respect.
