1974 election literature: what do you expect from your MP?

by Iain Roberts on 27 December, 2010

This Conservative leaflet from the February 1974 General election in Cheadle constituency would hardly look out of place today.   It’s a good quality glossy leaflet stressing the local credentials of the sitting MP: he lives in the constituency, comes home every weekend and deals with thousands of pieces of casework.

Normanton first won the seat in 1970 when a boundary reorganisation had made it safe for the Conservatives (at that time the constituency included Wilmslow).  He stood down in 1987.
