This is a list of members of the 17th Legislative Assembly of Queensland from February 1908 to October 1909, as elected at the 1908 state election held on 5 February 1908.[1]

The Philp Ministry did not command a majority on the floor of the Assembly during its short term of government, and the Assembly was dissolved, resulting in gains for both the Kidston Party and Labour, and the return of William Kidston as Premier. However, in late 1908, the two non-Labour parties merged into a new grouping known as the Ministerial party (a generic form referring to supporters of the Ministry). As not all members of the original parties supported the new Government, Kidston called another election — the third in 29 months — for 2 October 1909.
