1 Labor MLC Frank Blevins resigned on 15 November 1985 in order to contest the Legislative Assembly seat of Giles at the 1985 state election. Due to the proximity of the election, the parliament expired before the casual vacancy could be filled, and George Weatherill was duly appointed to serve out the remaining four years of Blevins' term by the new parliament in 1986.
