1952 Lyne by-election
The 1952 by-election for the Australian House of Representatives seat of Lyne was called on 22 March after the death of the incumbent Country Party of Australia member Jim Eggins who died in office on 28 January.
Two independents, Edward Spensley and Joe Cordner, also stood for the seat.
|Independent Liberal||Edward Spensley||775||2.1||+2.1|
|Total formal votes||36,409||98.5|
The presence of two Country Party candidates split the vote and Hayes took three thousand votes more than either Lucock or Lancaster, but with preferences from Lancaster, Lucock easily won the seat.
When Philip Lucock was sworn in as the member for Lyne on 22 March 1952, he became the first member of the House of Representatives to swear allegiance to Queen Elizabeth II who had ascended to the throne on 6 February.
