Weatherill Papers: constituency papers

These files contain material relating to Weatherill's work as an MP.


Miscellaneous constituency files

Accession code: WEA/PC M

These files relate to various issues within the constituency, usually issues or organisations which Weatherill particularly associated himself with. They appear to have been assembled by him as a series of reference files as there is little correspondence from Weatherill other than acknowledgement of receipt. There is also an interesting series of newssheets and pamphlets issued by the local Conservative Association.
