National Trade Development Association, earlier the National Trade Defence Association
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
In 1888 the National Trade Defence Fund was formed by representatives of the liquor trade in Britain and Ireland to combat Parliamentary opposition, teetotalism, Sunday Closing and the confiscation of licenses without compensation. The name of the organisation was altered to the National Trade Defence Association in 1890, and to the National Trade Development Association in 1958 (reflecting the changing work of the Association). The NTDA was dissolved on 2 December 1975, with all assets being transferred to the Brewers' Society.
