Foster then served in the South Australian Legislative Council from 1975 to 1982 and was probably best known for his support of the Tonkin Liberal government’s legislation in 1982 to allow the Roxby Downs uranium mine. The legislation was very controversial, and was opposed at the time by Labor. Foster resigned from the Labor Party just before he crossed the floor to give the final vote required to pass the legislation. He ran unsuccessfully for the Legislative Council as an independent Labor candidate in 1982. His ALP membership was reinstated in 1988.


He won the federal seat of Sturt from Liberal incumbent Ian Wilson at the 1969 election with a 50 percent primary and 50.5 percent two-party vote from a 15 percent two-party swing. Foster’s victory in the historically blue-ribbon Liberal seat was part of an 18-seat swing to Labor that nearly ended the Coalition’s record tenure in government. However, Wilson won the seat back at the 1972 election from a 2.7 percent swing even though Labor won government.


Norman was born in Adelaide and left school at 13. He worked as a labourer until he enlisted in the Second Australian Imperial Force’s 2/10th Battalion in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II.

After the war he worked on the docks in Port Adelaide and became a leader of the Waterside Workers’ Federation and president of the Trades and Labor Council in 1964.
