Notes: Hughes and Graham (1975) identify C.J.Parker as an All For Australia League candidate. In his study of the 1932 election, Geoffrey Robinson writes that Parker received UAP endorsement. Robinson states that 'throughout his campaign, Parker stressed his sympathy for the AFA, so that some contemporary and laters writers have identified him as an AFA rather than a UAP candidate.' In line with Robinson, Parker has been identified as a UAP candidate.
