An official condolence book in honour of Quinton Edness is available for signing today.

It can be signed at the Cabinet Office between 11am and 5pm today, or before the former Cabinet Minister’s funeral, at the Cathedral of The Most Holy Trinity Church, tomorrow.

A Government spokeswoman said: “The Government of Bermuda joins the community in extending heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the late Quinton Edness.”

Mr Edness, who served as a United Bermuda Party MP for 30 years, died last week at the age of 86.

Mr Edness was elected to Parliament in 1968 after he won the Warwick West seat and went on to serve in the UBP Cabinet in a variety of roles.

He led the ministries of home affairs, health and social services, marine and air, works, agriculture and fisheries and community affairs.

Mr Edness was awarded the CBE in 1992 in the Queen’s New Year Honour’s List for his public service.
