Henry Gillies Livingstone OBE (1890–1959) was a New Zealand politician of Christchurch. He was appointed a member of the New Zealand Legislative Council on 22 June 1950.[1]

He was active in the Reform Party and was an early advocate for uniting non-Labour parties into a single party.[2]

Livingstone was appointed as a member of the "suicide squad" nominated by the First National Government in 1950 to vote for the abolition of the Council. Most of the new members (like Livingstone) were appointed on 22 June 1950, and served until 31 December 1950 when the Council was abolished.

In 1935, he was awarded the King George V Silver Jubilee Medal.[3] In the 1954 Queen's Birthday Honours Livingstone was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to local government.[4]
