Notes

1 Following the 1933 state election a new Ministry consisting of eight members, including one Member of the Legislative Council, was appointed on 24 April 1933. These members were therefore required to resign and contest ministerial by-elections on 2 May 1933, at which all were returned unopposed.
2 At the 1933 election, Labor member Aubrey Coverley won the seat of Kimberley by just 32 votes against the Nationalist candidate Arthur Povah. On 3 July 1933, the Court of Disputed Returns ordered a fresh election for 29 July, which Coverley won by 289 votes.
3 On 16 March 1935, the Labor member for South Fremantle, Alick McCallum, resigned. Labor candidate Thomas Fox won the resulting by-election held on 4 May 1935.
4 Frank Wise was appointed Minister for Agriculture on 26 March 1935 following the departure of Alick McCallum from the Ministry, and was therefore required to resign and contest a ministerial by-election on 11 April 1935, at which he was returned unopposed.
5 On 23 March 1935, the Country member for Avon, Harry Griffiths, died. Country candidate Ignatius Boyle won the resulting by-election held on 4 May 1935.
6 On 21 July 1935, the Country member for Katanning, Arnold Piesse, died. Country candidate Arthur Watts won the resulting by-election held on 31 August 1935.

The Electoral district of Brown Hill-Ivanhoe was a Legislative Assembly electorate in the state of Western Australia. It covered part of the Goldfields city of Boulder, near Kalgoorlie, and neighbouring mining areas. It was created at the 1911 redistribution out of the former seats of Brown Hill and Ivanhoe, and was first contested at the 1911 election. It was abolished in the 1948 redistribution, with its area split between the neighbouring electorates of Boulder and Hannans, taking effect from the 1950 election. The seat was a very safe one for the Labor Party.

This is a list of members of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly between the 1930 election and the 1933 election, together known as the 14th Parliament. It took place under radically altered boundaries as enacted within the Redistribution of Seats Act 1929, whose effect had been exaggerated by the lack of a redistribution for the previous 18 years. The gold mining areas, populous at the time of the 1911 redistribution, had been reduced to pocket boroughs by the decline in gold mining as an economic activity in the State; meanwhile, the agricultural and metropolitan areas had grown substantially. Ironically, the changes were enacted by a Labor government even though most of the safe seats being abolished were Labor seats—and for the fourth time in a row, the government enacting the redistribution lost the subsequent election.
