Spearing's collection of press cuttings on European affairs from UK daily newspapers. Of the cuttings, Spearing wrote: 'One of their values could be the extent to which past events were viewed at the time, and the degree of understanding in news and "column" content of what is now see as retrospective significance, and the extent to which "re-assurance" and "warning" of the times have been unjustified, or not in each case; and maybe the reasons why [sic].'
The material covers much of Lord Duncan-Sandys public life. Papers, reports and correspondence document the ministries in which he served and there are also constituency correspondence, speeches, publications, press cuttings and photographs. A number of papers exist relating to his involvement in the campaign to restore Capital Punishment, the European Movement and the Civic Trust.
The collection comprises a wide variety of material from a number of different sources which have been deemed too small to be considered individual collections in their own right and have been grouped together under the heading "miscellaneous". Subjects covered include First and Second World Wars, the Falklands Campaign, and recollections of Sir Winston Churchill.
