The See ministry was the 30th ministry of the New South Wales Government, and was led by the 14th Premier, the Honourable Sir John See, KCMG, MLA.

State of New South Wales (1901–1911)

See was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly in 1880 as member for Grafton, serving in the Dibbs and Lyne ministries, prior to assuming leadership of the Protectionist Party. The ministry covers the period from 28 March 1901 until 14 June 1904,[1][2] when failing health and the death of his wife in March 1904 compelled him to retire.[3][4] See was succeeded by his Protectionist Party colleague, Thomas Waddell.

The composition of the ministry was announced by Premier See on 28 March 1901 and covers the period up to 14 June 1904. Ministers are listed in order of seniority.
