This thesis is principally an analysis of Bradford politics in the period 1880-1906 as manifested in parliamentary elections. It is concerned with the changes in relative strength of the political parties as well as their attitude to the issues of the day and the nature of their political support. Its main themes are the development of Conservatism and the political emergence of an independent Labour movement at the expense of an hitherto omnipotent Liberal party. The background to this political transformation was the "Great Depression" which hit Bradford severely and hardened class attitudes. This basically explains the Liberals' reluctance to concede to Labour demands, particularly Labour representation which ultimately resulted in the formation of the Bradford I.L.P. in 1891. When the Liberals did begin to make concessions in the 1890's it was always at the risk of alienating right-wing support which first became a serious problem with the secession of the Liberal Unionists over Home Rule in 1886. Moreover, Liberal difficulties were intensified by the creation of single member constituencies in 1885 which precluded the running of a Moderate and a Radical and also by the issues of the day which generally benefited the Conservatives. Imperialism, Home Rule, education and Local Veto were skilfully exploited by the Conservatives to win both middle and working-class support. As a result the Conservatives gained control of the School Board, 1894-97; Town Council, 1899-1901 and each of the three parliamentary divisions, 1895-1906. At the Liberal landslide of 1906 the Bradford Liberals won only two seats, the third going to the I.L.P. which by then was firmly established. Although Bradford itself was still a Liberal Nonconformist town the Bradford Liberal party was reduced to its Nonconformist core and Bradford politics were fast developing on class lines.
