The UK general election of 1895 was held from 13 July - 7 August 1895. It was won by the Conservatives, led by Lord Salisbury, who obtained a large majority over Lord Rosebery's Liberals in combination with the Liberal Unionists who now formed a government with them. The Irish Parliamentary Party was split at this time, the majority of its MPs (the "Anti-Parnellites") following John Dillon whilst a rump (the "Parnellites") followed John Redmond.
