Liberal Reform Party (Australia)


Liberal Reform Party (Australia)

The Liberal Reform Party was an Australian political party, active in New South Wales state politics. It emerged after federation in 1901, which spurred the development of political parties in states which had previously been non-partisan. With the arrival of the Progressive Party at approximately the same time, it created a two-party system that characterised the first decade of the twentieth century in the state.
