Third Fisher Ministry

The Third Fisher Ministry (Labor) was the 11th ministry of the Government of Australia. It was led by the country's 5th Prime Minister, Andrew Fisher. The Third Fisher Ministry succeeded the Cook Ministry, which dissolved on 17 September 1914 following the federal election that took place on 5 September which saw Labor defeat Joseph Cook's Commonwealth Liberals. The ministry was replaced by the First Hughes Ministry on 27 October 1915 following Fisher's retirement from Parliament to become the next High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.[1]
