A new ministry was formed following the death of the incumbent prime minister Joseph Lyons on 7 April 1939. Lyons' United Australia Party (UAP) had been governing in coalition with the Australian Country Party since the formation of the Third Lyons Ministry on 9 November 1934. After his death, the leader of the Country Party Sir Earle Page formed a caretaker government while the UAP elected a new leader, former attorney-general Robert Menzies. After conflict between Page and Menzies, the Country Party withdrew from the coalition and the First Menzies Ministry comprised solely UAP members.
