Independent Labour Party

(ILP)
   Formed in 1893 at the Bradford Conference, the Independent Labour Party was originally composed of 120 representatives of local socialist and labor organizations from throughout Great Britain. Its formation was the result of Keir Hardie’s calls for a united labor party, and it followed a socialist policy “to secure the collective ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange. Its social program was progressive with demands for reforms such as the abolition of child labor and an eight-hour working day, and from its earliest days women were able to stand for positions on the same terms as men. The ILP was influenced by Marxist ideas and members from it became founder members of the British Socialist Party which later merged with various other left-wing groups to become the Communist Party of Great Britain. However, the ILP was more significant in the creation of the British Labour Party and as a radical pressure group within it. It dissolved in 1975.
