Western Australian Legislative Council upper house of the Legislature of the state of Western Australia

The Western Australian Legislative Council is the upper house of the Parliament of Western Australia, a state of Australia. It is regarded as a house of review for legislation passed by the Legislative Assembly, the lower house. The two Houses of Parliament sit in Parliament House in the state capital, Perth.

South-West Province was an electoral province of the Legislative Council of Western Australia between 1894 and 1989. It elected three members between 1894 and 1965 and two members between 1965 and 1989.

McLarty was born in Pinjarra, in Western Australia's Peel region. His brother, John Pollard McLarty, was also a member of parliament. McLarty managed a run at Mandurah for a period in the 1860s, and later had his own stud in Pinjarra, on a property of 16,000 acres (65 km2). Prominent in agricultural circles, he was elected to the Murray Road Board in 1875 (on which he would serve for most of the rest of his life), and was also appointed a justice of the peace. McLarty was elected to parliament at the 1894 Legislative Council elections, which were the first for that body under responsible government. His initial term was for four years, but at all subsequent elections (in 1898, 1904, and 1910) he was elected to six-year terms. McLarty left parliament in 1916, and died in Pinjarra the following year, aged 69. He had married Mary Jane Campbell in 1873, with whom he had seven children. One of his sons was Sir Ross McLarty, who was Premier of Western Australia from 1947 to 1953. [1]
