Thomas de Vere (Pat) Hunt (born 19 January 1931) was a New Zealand politician of the National Party.
|Parliament of New Zealand|
In 1978 Hunt replaced Gavin Downie as the National candidate for Pakuranga, in a controversial challenge to a sitting MP. Downie stood as an Independent and the previous substantial majority was reduced, but Hunt was elected in 1978. Hunt narrowly held onto the electorate in 1981 when he was challenged by Neil Morrison of the Social Credit Party. Morrison defeated Hunt at the 1984 election.
