Fiona Scott

Member for Lindsay (NSW)

LIB, 2013–2016

Fiona Scott was elected to the House of Representatives as the Liberal Party representative for the electorate of Lindsay at the 2013 federal election.

Prior to entering parliament, Scott attained a Bachelor of Business from the University of Western Sydney and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of New South Wales. She also worked in marketing for a number of companies before becoming a partner in a private marketing business.

In her first speech to the parliament Scott noted with pride her long-standing family connection with the Nepean Valley and recounted her formative experiences of working in her family’s service station business in Penrith. She stated that 'a strong, innovative small business sector is key to ensuring the wealth of this nation' and expressed frustration with the costs and regulations faced by family businesses.

A strong campaigner for Western Sydney, Scott spoke often of the achievements of individuals and organisations in her electorate and advocated for the creation of local jobs, services and infrastructure.

After serving one term in the House of Representatives Scott was defeated at the 2016 federal election.
