How many politicians have served since federation? How many in the house of reps and how many in the senate?
Hi David, thank you for such an interesting question!
Part 5 – Historical Information on the Australian Parliament – of the Parliamentary Handbook lists all the senators and members of the House of Representatives who have sat in the Australian Parliament.
It is interesting to note, that as of February 2022, 55 people have served in both the Senate and House of Representatives.
The House of Representatives.
