Liberal Unionist - definition of Liberal Unionist in Encyclopedia (407 words)
The Liberal Unionists were a British political party which split away from the Liberals in 1886, and had effectively merged with the Conservatives by the turn of the century, the formal merger being completed in 1912.
Most of the Liberal Unionists were drawn from the Whig faction of the party, including Hartington and George Goschen, and had been expected to split from the party (for reasons connected with economic and social policy) anyway.
The leading Liberal Unionists were invited to join the Conservative Lord Salisbury's government, but most initially sat on the back benches, leaving the way open for the reunion of the Liberal Party.
