Description
Conservatives and National Liberals formed an electoral alliance, the Woolton-Teviot agreement of May 1947, merging at the constituency level. The Conservatives had no majority of seats in parliament and there were no cabinet members from the National Liberals although Churchill had offered a cabinet position to Clement Davies who turned the offer down. "The National Liberals met regularly as a group each Wednesday throughout the 1951-5 parliament, though they never voted as a group against the government" (Dutton 1989, 366-7).
