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.Leave a comment
