David Prowse, a former Australian politician, was the first Speaker of the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly.

Prowse was a member of the first multi-member single electorate unicameral Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly representing, initially, the No Self-Government Party, then sat as an independent, before joining the Liberal Party of Australia. Prowse was elected at the 1989 general election on a No Self-Government ticket, but was ultimately successful, along with three other candidates of the Party. On 3 December 1989, Prowse, together with Duby and Maher formed the Independents Group. However, Prowse left this group on 31 July 1990 and sat out the remainder of his term as a member of the Liberal Party.[1] Prowse did not seek re-election at the 1992 general election.[2] During his term in the Assembly, Prowse served as the inaugural Speaker of the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly.[3]
