David Edward Llewellyn (born 16 August 1942 in St Marys, Tasmania)[1] is a former Australian politician, who was an Australian Labor Party member of the Tasmanian House of Assembly from 1986 to 2010.[1] He was defeated at the 2010 election.

Political career

Llewellyn was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly for the seat of Lyons at the 1986 state election which was won by the Liberal Party under Robin Gray. Labor formed a minority government with the support of the Green Independents under the Labor–Green Accord in 1989, and Llewellyn joined Michael Field's inaugural cabinet as Minister for Primary Industry and Forests. Llewellyn would hold the Primary Industries, Water and Energy portfolios on several other occasions, from 1998 to 2002 and 2006 to 2008. From 2002 to 2006, he was Paul Lennon's Deputy Premier.

On 13 May 2011, Mr Llewellyn admitted to ABC Radio that the Labor and Liberal parties conspired in 1998 to reduce the number of MPs from 35 to 25 in an effort to eliminate the Greens.[2]

Personal life

Llewellyn is married with two sons. He has an interest in genealogy, electronics, and fishing, and plays golf and lawn bowls.[3]
