The British Liberal Political Studies Group was founded in 2005 and for the first five years was an active sub-group of the Political Studies Association, holding a number of conferences around the UK.
In the last three years, however, it has has become virtually inactive beyond a panel at the PSA conference. As chair my own circumstances have also changed and I am no longer in a university department with which to improve its activities. Therefore myself and the other convenors, Professor Richard Grayson and Dr Lisa Harrison, have decided to close the Group down.
The small residue of the bank account has gone to the Liberal Democrat History Group and the Lloyd George Society to help support a Liberal conference they will be running early next year. Can I thank your for your support over the last eight years and wish you success with your own studies.
Dr Russell Deacon
