Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has confirmed a State Memorial Service will be held on Monday (February 5, 2018) to honour the life of BARRY COHEN.

The service will be held at Old Parliament House in Canberra, whose corridors Mr Cohen walked so many times as he served as the federal member for Robertson between 1969 and 1990.

The 82 year old Labor stalwart, who was also a Minister in the Hawke Government and published 8 books, died in December after a battle with Alzheimers.

A private Jewish funeral was held.
