Statement from Senator Milne on the death of Harry Evans
On behalf of all Australian Greens Senators who had the pleasure of working with Harry Evans during his time as Clerk of the Senate, I wish to express my sincere condolences to his family.
Harry was a fierce defender of the Senate. He was an outstanding advocate for democracy and democratic principles, and with a keen understanding of constitutional history he was not afraid to call out the excesses of executive power.
The people of Australia were very well served by Harry Evans. He did everything in his power to uphold democracy and strengthen Australia's governance system.
He was generous with his time and provided frank and fearless advice to senators of all political persuasions.
He will be sadly missed.
