Notes: Nicoll was a sitting MP for The Richmond. The Australian Workman listed Gilroy as an Independent Labor candidate in its pre-election issue (14 July), but he is missing from the post election issue when Willard is suddenly included as an official Labor candidate. Gilroy is shown here as Independent, Willard as Labor. Neither is mentioned in the Worker.
Corrections: Gilroy is listed as a Labor candidate in Hughes and Graham (1975).
