A Conservative is taken to mean an identifiable member of that political party, whether they are a member of a constituency association in the localities, a Member of Parliament sitting on the backbenches or a serving minister in the National government. During this period the party’s official title was the Conservative and Unionist party, but for the purposes of simplicity and continuity the term Conservative shall be used throughout this work.
