The National Labour Party were a split from The Labour Party that lasted from 1944 to 1950. The split was due to various factors but mainly that Jim Larkin Snr had been allowed join the party and then selected to run for Labour in 1943, against the wishes of the ITGWU. The National Labour Party felt that Labour Party was overrun with Communists. The differences were finally settled in 1950, when the two parties were serving in Government together.
