Extent6 leaves
Administrative HistoryReferences to the League of Nations, war-prevention policies and the Hadow Report (1926) are indicative of a date for this address somewhere in the early 1930s.
DescriptionLiberal Party 'Address to the Nation', outlining the party's support for war-prevention policies; disarmament; and lowering of trading tariffs (including reducing volume of trade, introduction of meat and milk quotas - 'problem not over-production but under-consumption'), ? early 1930s. Acknowledges areas of common ground with other parties, but goes on to describe exclusive Liberal party policies such as advocacy of free trade; democratic reform of the House of Lords; proportional representation; education; re-organisation of staple industries (coal, iron, cotton); and agricultural policies that focus upon areas of production most naturally suited to Britain ('leave wheat and sugar').
