Moore Ministry (Western Australia)

Moore Ministry (Western Australia)

The Moore Ministry was the 9th Ministry of the Government of Western Australia and was led by Ministerialist Premier Newton Moore. It succeeded the Rason Ministry on 7 May 1906 after Rason resigned to accept an appointment as Agent-General for Western Australia in London. It was succeeded by the First Wilson Ministry on 16 September 1910 after Moore resigned for exactly the same reason.

On 7 May 1906, the Governor, Admiral Sir Frederick Bedford, designated 6 principal executive offices of the Government under section 43(2) of the Constitution Acts Amendment Act 1899.
