Andrew Fisher was the fifth Prime Minister of Australia and he represented Wide Bay from the very first federal election [1901 until 1915]. He was PM on three occasions: 1908–09, 1910-13 and 1914-15. He resigned from the Prime Ministership and Parliament in 1915 and was subsequently appointed Australia’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom from January 1916 to January 1921.
