Lawrence James Anthony (born 17 December 1961)[1] is an Australian former politician. He was a National Party of Australia member of the Australian House of Representatives representing the Division of Richmond, New South Wales, from the March 1996 election until his defeat in the 2004 election.[2] He held the seat that was previously held by his father, Doug Anthony, and his grandfather, Larry Anthony, senior. The Anthonys are the only three-generation dynasty in the history of the House of Representatives.[3]

Early life

Anthony was born in Sydney, New South Wales, and educated at Canberra Grammar School[citation needed] before attending university at the University of New South Wales, Sydney.[1] He was a businessman and stockbroker before entering politics.[1]


Anthony first ran in Richmond in 1993, losing to Labor incumbent Neville Newell—the first time that a member of the Anthony family had lost an election. He sought a rematch in 1996, and defeated Newell as part of the Coalition's decisive win that year.

However, due to demographic changes over the previous two decades that made Richmond much more compact and urban, Anthony was never able to establish nearly as secure a hold on the seat as his father and grandfather possessed when they held it for 47 consecutive years from 1937 to 1984. He barely held onto his seat in 1998 (against Newell) and 2001, surviving both times on One Nation preferences. In 2004, he was defeated by Labor's Justine Elliot, being the only Coalition MP from a rural electorate to lose his seat and the first member of the Anthony family to be unseated at an election. On the seventh count, Elliot picked up a large flow of Green preferences, allowing her to defeat Anthony by 301 votes.

Anthony was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Trade 1998–99, Minister for Community Services 1999–2001 and Minister for Children and Youth Affairs from 2001 to 2004.[1]

Anthony became Federal President of the National Party in 2015 and announced his intention to retire in 2021 [4]
