The New Ingerland general election of 1914 was held on Thursday, 3 September 1914. The Conservatives, now led by Robert Stratton, were easily returned to power just weeks after the outbreak of the First World War. The Liberals were also able to gain seats, chiefly at the expense of Labour, who won just one seat.
