Notes

1 On 27 August 1936, West Province Labor MLC William Kitson was appointed Chief Secretary in the new Ministry led by John Willcock. He was therefore required to resign and contest a ministerial by-election, at which he was returned unopposed on 4 September 1936.
2 On 23 March 1938, North-East Province Nationalist MLC Charles Elliott died. No by-election was held due to the proximity of the 7 May 1938 Council elections.
