Organisational History

One of the largest units within Central Office is the Organisation Department. This is something of an umbrella body, with sub-sections which have, at various times, included the Industrial, Local Government, Speakers' and Education Departments, the Overseas Bureau, Young Conservatives, Students, Personnel, the Small Business Bureau, and the Organisation and Legal Officer. Certain departments started as sub-sections of Organisation and graduated to independent status.

Other primary departments, some of which have their own sub-departments, include the General Director's Office, the Publicity Department, Community Affairs, the International Office and Overseas Bureau, the Conservative Political Centre, the Women's Organisation Office, Finance and Resources and the Public Opinion Research Department.

Restrictions on Access

General access conditions apply to most material. Access to records relating to the Legal Officer and legal cases require permission from Conservative Central Office. Financial papers are closed.

General Elections, 1950-70

    A: 1950 General Election, 1950

Note: Following the 1950 General Election the Organisation Department undertook a review of every aspect of the Party's Election campaign and organisation. Each department and area office submitted a report on its General Election work, and a senior Party officer carried out a detailed investigation of how well each section of the organisation had operated. A large dossier of information on each department and office was accumulated, from which was written a general report on Party organisation during the election campaign. The result is a thorough analysis of the campaign and of the organisational efficiency of the Party machine working to its very limits. The files contain much material from the election itself- leaflets, circulars, posters, minutes and memoranda of the Tactical Committee, Reports of the Public Opinion Research Department, etc. They are, however, essentially review files compiled after the election.
