Notes: Healy is listed as a Labor candidate in Hughes and Graham (1975), but not in the SMH selected lists (16 July). The Australian Workman lists him as Independent Labor, the affiliation adopted here. He was not mentioned in the Worker. Piddington was included in the list of the radical Free Trade and Land Reform Association.
