Notes: Joyce is listed as a Labor candidate in Hughes and Graham (1975), but is missing from the SMH list of selected candidates (16 July). He is listed as a Labor candidate in the general listing of candidates in both the SMH and DT, but is clearly listed in the Australian Workman as Independent Labor, the affiliation adopted here. He was not listed in the Worker.
