The Manchester Rusholme by-election of 1933 was held on 21 November 1933. The by-election was held due to the appointment to high court of the incumbent Conservative MP, Frank Merriman. It was won by the Conservative candidate Edmund Radford.[1]


The executive of the local Liberal association voted by a majority, not to put forward a candidate for the by-election. However, Dr Percy McDougall was nominated and ran as an unofficial Liberal candidate.[2]
