Members of the Victorian Legislative Council, 1952–1955
This is a list of members of the Victorian Legislative Council between 1952 and 1955. As half of the Legislative Council's terms expired at each triennial election, half of these members were elected at the 1949 triennial election with terms expiring in 1955, while the other half were elected at the 1952 triennial election with terms expiring in 1958.
This was the first Legislative Council term where members were elected from the same electoral rolls as the Assembly. In 1955, before the triennial election, the Australian Labor Party split, with some members leaving to form the Australian Labor Party (Anti-Communist), which became the Democratic Labor Party (DLP).
