The National Labour Party was a political party in Jamaica, founded by Ken Hill. Hill had been expelled from the People's National Party in 1952, accused of having advocated communism.[1] The NLP ran three candidates in the 1955 general election; Ken Hill contested Kingston Western, getting 3,262 votes (21.91%, trailing behind the PNP and JLP candidates). Frank Hill contested the Saint Andrew Central seat, getting 784 votes (3.24%). W. M. Grubb finished second in the Hanover Eastern seat, getting 1,958 votes (30.31%).[2]

The NLP disappeared in the 1960s.[1]
