The Australian Constitution is reproduced in Year Book Australia from time to time, the latest being the 1998 edition.
In Year Book Australia 1924 the names are given of each Ministry up to the Bruce-Page Ministry together with the names of the successive holders of portfolios therein. Year Book Australia 1953 contains a list which covers the period between 9 February 1923, the date on which the Bruce-Page Ministry assumed power, and 31 July 1951, showing the names of all persons who held office in each Ministry during that period. The names of members of subsequent Ministries are listed in issues of Year Book Australia 1953 to 1975–76 inclusive, and in successive issues from 1980.
