ⓘ Members of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly, 1914–1917

This is a list of members of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly between the 1914 election and the 1917 election, together known as the Ninth Parliament. The re-election of Premier John Scaddans Labor Government with a 26-24 majority in 1914 was tempered when, a year later, Labor member Joseph Gardiners seat was declared vacant on account of his non-attendance and a Liberal was elected in his stead, and Labor became a minority government when on 18 December 1915, Edward Johnston resigned from the Labor Party and became an independent. On 27 July 1916, the Scaddan Ministry was defeated and the Liberals Frank Wilson became the new Premier.

In March 1917, the labor Party split ahead of the 1917 Federal election. The Federal party split for a year before being drafted into the army, and in Western Australia, where the call received broad support, all of the labor senators in the elections joined Billy the nationalist party Hughess. A number of member States of labour, including former Prime Minister John Scaddan, either left the party or were expelled for their support. In may 1917, they formed a new National labor party with a base in the Goldfields region, historically the heart of the labor vote in Western Australia. In June 1917, they formed a coalition with the new nationalist party, which replaced the former Liberal party and country party to form a ruling coalition. With these arrangements, another Ministry was formed under the new Prime Minister Henry Lefroy.
