NotesEdit

  1. ^ Nash had been a Kirkstall ward councillor since 1972.
  2. ^ Atha had previously represented City ward from 1957 to 1968, when he lost his bid to be re-elected to council for the new West Hunslet ward. He was then a councillor for Holbeck ward from 1969 until his election for Kirkstall ward in 1973.
  3. ^ After losing his re-election bid for Kirkstall ward at the next election in 1979, Hamilton was later elected as a Weetwood ward councillor in 1980 and held the seat until 1990.
  4. ^ Nash did not stand at the next election in 1988. She later won the 1989 City & Holbeck ward by-election and, since the 2018 election, has represented Hunslet & Riverside ward. To date, except for between 1988 and 1989, Nash has sat as a councillor since 1972, when she was first elected for Kirkstall ward.
