From 1905, the Ulster Liberal Unionist Association was represented on the Ulster Unionist Council, but given that the Association was headquartered at the Reform Club, and the Liberal Unionists soon became an irrelevance in Northern Ireland, in 1929, their representation was transferred to the political committee of the Ulster Reform Club.
The committee included members such as Lord Pirrie, Thomas Somerset and W. J. Stewart and, in later years, David Graham Shillington, Maynard Sinclair, Herbert Kirk, William McCleery, Brian Faulkner and J. L. O. Andrews. However, it attracted criticism for being overly secretive, refusing to reveal details of its constitution, membership or purpose even to officials of the Ulster Unionist Party.
