- 1 The three anti-Labor parties, the Liberal and Democratic Union, the Australasian National League and the Farmers and Producers Political Union, formally merged to form the Liberal Union in late 1910. They had been in merger discussions for some time, and had jointly endorsed a united Liberal ticket for all but three House of Assembly seats at the 1910 election.
- 2 Barossa MHA Ephraim Coombe, who had been elected for the Liberal and Democratic Union, refused to sign the merged Liberal Union pledge and never sat with the new party. He served out his term as an independent, although some sources refer to him as unsuccessfully having tried to found a rival liberal party during this term.
