Notes:-
1987:McCartney had been expelled from the Ulster Unionist party on 19th May 1987 for continuing to advocate a policy of integration. He sought election as a 'Real Unionist' candidate.
1995:McCartney advocated a policy of integration. He sought election as a 'United Kingdom Unionist'. During the campaign he pledged that if elected he would take the Labour whip, but the Labour Whip's office declined to extend it to him. On election, he did however sit on the Labour benches and was a fairly consistent supporter of the Labour position on matters not relating to Northern Ireland. In May 1996 he and his supporters formed the United Kingdom Unionist Party.

Brooks advocated the release from gaol of Lee Howard Clegg, of the Third Battalion, the Parachute Regiment. Private Clegg was convicted on 4th June 1993 of the murder of Karen Reilly, who was a passenger in a stolen car which came under fire from Clegg's army patrol in Belfast on 30th September 1990. Clegg appealed to the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal but failed on 30th March 1994, and a further appeal to the House of Lords failed on 19th January 1995. At the time of the election, Private Clegg was appealing to the sentence review board for release. Several newspapers had also taken up the case. Clegg was released from gaol on 4th July 1995. At a retrial hearing concluding on 11th March 1999 his conviction for murder was quashed and a conviction of attempting to wound with intent the car driver (Martin Peake) was substituted, but this conviction was overturned on appeal on 31st January 2000.

Carter sought election as 'Ulster's Independent Voice'.
