Admin Biographical HistoryThe Liberal Party was re-launched in 1989 by those Liberals who opposed the merger of the Liberal and Social Democrat Parties in 1988. The party is run by a National Executive Committee (NEC), elected in a postal ballot of all members. It holds an Annual Assembly where motions are debated and, if passed, become party policy. The party publishes a journal, 'Liberal News', which contains articles on policy matters as well as news of campaigns and other events. In 2005, the Liberal Party had around 1300 members, and in that year's general election it won 19,068 votes. In 2007, it had 30 local councillors.
DescriptionPapers of the Liberal Party from their re-launch in 1989 onwards, mainly NEC minutes, press releases, leaflets and other publications, policy documents, assembly papers, regional reports, reports for the National Union of Liberal Clubs, election ephemera and copies of 'Liberal News'.
