Tue, 28th October 2008 ALLAN SCOTT

Senator the Hon Nick Minchin Shadow Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate

I am deeply saddened to learn that Allan Scott has passed away.

As the senior Federal Liberal Member of Parliament in South Australia, I convey my sincere condolences to Mr Scott’s family.

I record my recognition and appreciation of the enormous contribution Allan Scott made to South Australia and the nation.

He was an extremely successful businessman who built great businesses and created jobs for probably thousands of South Australians.

He was a passionate supporter of his favourite causes, especially the Port Adelaide Football Club which was a significant beneficiary of his generosity.

Indeed the last time I was with Allan, was at the Port Adelaide Grand Final dinner in Melbourne last year.

Allan was a truly great Australian of whom all South Australians should be proud.
