Second Lyons Ministry

The Second Lyons Ministry was the twenty-second Australian Commonwealth ministry, and ran from 12 October 1934 to 9 November 1934.[1] It was formed after the 1934 federal election and consisted solely of members of the United Australia Party (UAP), as with the First Lyons Ministry. However, it was a minority government and just after a month later Lyons and the UAP entered into a coalition with the Australian Country Party led by Earle Page.
