Statement from Senator Macdonald

Queensland has lost an icon with the passing of Lady Flo Bjelke-Petersen.

I had the privilege to serve with Lady Flo in the Senate for three years and grew to understand why she had been such an integral part of the leadership of Queensland during Sir Joh’s term as Premier.

She made a fine contribution to Australia during her term in the Senate but I guess she will be most fondly remembered for her famous ‘pumpkin scones’.

I extended my condolences to Lady Flo’s family.
