Scope and Contents

No file cover has been found for this file. Material accumulated has come from two sources.Material returned to the Archives Centre by Martin Gilbert [official biographer of WSC]: 1 page, an extract from an address by WSC to Essex Conservatives (15 December 1932) on elections and [4th] Lord Salisbury's [earlier Lord Cranborne] Committee, plus an envelope. These were replaced in this box in May 1998 to be incorporated into file CHUR 4/73 (which was duly noted missing in May 1998).Material removed from the papers at the time of 3rd Lord Birkenhead's [earlier Frederick Smith and Lord Furneaux] biography of WSC and originally returned to CHUR 4/82: galley proofs of "Why we lost" (John Bull magazine, 15 June 1929), proportional representation speech by WSC (2 June [1931]), "Whither Britain?" (The Listener magazine, 17 January 1934, the text of a broadcast on 16 January), "How we can restore the lost glory to democracy" (Evening Standard, 24 January 1934), "Are parliaments obsolete?" (Pearson's magazine, June 1934), and "Election ahead - and the same old voting system" (Daily Mail, 29 May 1935). These were placed in this file in May 1999.These reprints are assumed to have been made at a post-1945 date due to their presence in the CHUR papers.
