This article is about the Australian politician. For the English cricketer and football (soccer) player, see Raymond Bailey (cricketer and footballer).

Raymond Frederick Bailey (25 November 1935 – 15 February 2012) was a member of the Tasmanian Legislative Council. He was first elected to the now abolished Division of Cornwall on 26 May 1990. He was re-elected in the 1996 Cornwall election.

Bailey became President of the Legislative Council on 17 June 1997, a position which he held until 4 May 2002.

In 1999 a redistribution tribunal abolished his electorate of Cornwall, because of the reduction in the size of parliament. Instead he automatically became member for Rosevears; this new electorate included much of Cornwall anyway. He retired in 2002.
