State Labor Party and Federal Labor Party: The Labor Party in New South Wales had long standing disagreements with the federal wing of the party, and the New South Wales branch of the party was expelled from the Australian Labor Party in 1931. This split in the Labor Party meant that there were two competing Labor parties at the 1932 and 1935 New South Wales elections; State Labor under the leadership of former premier Lang, and Federal Labor; for the 1935 election, see McCarthy, '1935', pp. 126-132, 134-135, 137 (see Reference, below). For a study of federal strains within the Labor Party in this period, see Pat Weller, Bev Lloyd, and Bron Stevens, 'State Power and Federal Intervention', in Heather Radi and Peter Spearritt (editors), Jack Lang, pp. 160-178, (Neutral Bay, NSW: Hale & Iremonger, 1977, ISBN 0908094019).
Country Party: The Country Party's official name at this election was 'United Country Party' although it campaigned under the label 'Country Party'.
