Copy of letter from WSC to Stanley Baldwin, 16 Oct 1930

Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 2/572/104-105

Scope and Contents

Copy of letter from WSC to Stanley Baldwin on the Conservative Party's latest manifesto on tariff reform. WSC feels that the policy has been expressed in very general terms which means that it is capable of being interpreted in different ways. He expresses his opposition to the 'protective taxation of staple foods, by which I mean particularly wheat or other cereals, beef, mutton, bacon and milk' because he does not believe that the Dominions would offer any opportunities for British manufacturers. Although WSC intends to make his views on this issue public he expresses his intention to work hard for the Conservative Party and finishes by criticising intrigue within the party.Unsigned typescript copy.
