Members of the Western Australian Legislative Council, 1922–1924

Last updated

This is a list of members of the Western Australian Legislative Council from 22 May 1922 to 21 May 1924. The chamber had 30 seats made up of ten provinces each electing three members, on a system of rotation whereby one-third of the members would retire at each biennial election. During the term, the Country Party split into rival Ministerial (MCP) and Executive (ECP) factions–although in the Council, this was diluted somewhat by the refusal of some long-standing Country members to become involved in the dispute. The Executive faction, loyal to the Primary Producers' Association, prevailed and by 1925 the Ministerial faction had merged with the Nationalist Party.
