Christopher Douglas "Chris" Haviland (born 27 February 1952) is a former Australian politician. Born in Sydney, he was a public servant with the Commonwealth Department of Health. In 1993, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Labor member for Macarthur, succeeding Stephen Martin, who contested Cunningham instead. In 1996, however, he lost his Labor endorsement and retired from politics.[1]

In 2013, he attempted to return to politics when he was preselected as the ALP candidate for Bradfield in that year's federal election. However, Bradfield is a comfortably safe Liberal seat, and Haviland only won 29.2 percent of the two-party vote.[2][3][4][5]
