Corrections: Turner is listed as an Independent in Hughes and Graham (1975), but as explained in Cunneen's study of the 1944 election, he was a pre-selected Labor Party candidate denied endorsment when the party chose not to contest the seat. He was expelled from the Labor Party after the election.
