I think so. It was an independent party for a while, and predated the creation of the DLP. I'd see the relationship as being like the Australia Party to the Australian Democrats, both of which we have seperate articles on. I also think, as a general principle, merging seperate (but related) parties into one article is a bad idea. It tends to lead to the sort of confusion we have with early state parties, where we've say, got all of the post-1917 split members marked as members of the Nationalist Party of Australia, when they were actually members of unaffiliated (and different in a number of ways) state parties with similar names.

Should it be included in the article that despite the existence of the QLP the Queensland ALP is still mistakenly referred to as the Queensland Labor Party.
I have heard some commentators even managing to avoid referring to the Queensland ALP as Queensland Labor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Shadow Treasurer (talk • contribs) 05:40, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
The article says the QLP was absorbed into the DLP in 1962, but then goes on to discuss the QLP's electoral success in 1963 and 1966. Can anyone clarify if/when/how the QLP was absorbed into the DLP? Kerry (talk) 09:31, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
