1933 Secession Referendum

Polling Day: 8 April 1933

Question 1: Are you in favour of the State of Western Australia withdrawing from the Federal Commonwealth established under the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act (Imperial)?

Question 2: Are you in favour of a Convention of Representatives of equal number from each of the Australian states being summoned for the purpose of proposing such alterations in the Constitution of the Commonwealth as may appear to such Convention to be necessary?

Outcome: The State Government sent a delegation to Westminster in 1935 but a Select Committee recommendation was adopted by which the Imperial Parliament refused to intervene on the issue of secession.
