The article highlights the autumn conference of the Independent Labour Party (ILP) which was held at the National Museum of Labour History on November 27, 1993. The theme of the conference is "Socialists in British Politics: The Independent Labour Party From 1918." The topics discussed are: the ILP and gender in the 1920s with special reference to Bristol; Clydeside ILP before and after disaffiliation; politics of the ILP; and ILP's organizational and financial weaknesses. The recognition of the crisis is to be found in the conference theme itself.
