This chapter examines the permeation of liberalism into Labour and socialist positions. It analyses the prevalence of liberal assumptions in the thought of two British socialists: H.J. Laski and R.H. Tawney. The New Statesman, particularly the contributions of G.D.H. Cole, provides insight into the emergence of liberal notions as central components of social ideas.
