Abstract:
Conservative Research Department: Briefs, 1964-1985

Shelfmarks: CRD/B

Extent: 104 shelfmarks

Organisational History

The formal 'briefs' prepared by the Conservative Research Department for Members prior to parliamentary debates became formalised after 1945. Up to 1964, briefs have generally been catalogued with the rest of the papers of the Research Department; however, cross-references are given below where they have been identified. It is hoped that these earlier briefs will be catalogued in more details in due course and added to this catalogue.

Briefs were originally prepared for and presented to the Committee of the Parliamentary Party under whose jurisdiction the subject matter came, but these did not necessarily reflect the relevant Government Department (for instance, briefs were prepared for the Conservative Parliamentary Agriculture Committee and assigned a ‘PAC’ reference, or subsequently an ‘AG’ reference, denoting Agriculture, despite the various restructurings of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

By the mid-1980s, briefs seem to have been prepared according to policy area without reference to any specific parliamentary committee, and made available to all Members prior to parliamentary debates.These policy areas more closely reflected the remit of the government department concerned, so that knowledge of the responsible department is needed in order to locate any relevant briefs. No central, comprehensive index of all briefs produced by the Research Department seems to have been kept, except for the years 1995-1999.

Arrangement

References: Briefs were usually (but not consistently) given an alphanumeric reference number to denote a particularly policy area or committee. Where evident, briefs have been listed showing any contemporary CRD references applied. If '[Vacant]' appears next to a brief reference, this means that it is missing from the collection held in the Conservative Party Archive, not necessarily that no brief was produced. References were either written in the form PAC(65)1 or PAC/65/1, but the former has been adopted throughout this catalogue for the sake of consistency. It is possible for the same reference to be used for briefs written for entirely different policy areas - eg, PAC(65)1 is the reference given to a brief on 'Channel Islands' Milk' prepared for the Parliamentary Agriculture Committee on 1st March 1965, and also a brief on 'Independent Airlines under the Socialists' prepared for the Parliamentary Aviation Committee dated 22nd February 1965. As a result, this led to occasional contemporary mis-filing of briefs into the wrong policy series when the papers were still held at the CRD. Where this has been identified the briefs have been removed to and catalogued under the correct series.

Authors: briefs were usually prepared by the Desk Officer in the Conservative Research Department with the relevant specialism in that particular policy area. CRD house style was to include the initials of the Desk Officer who compiled the brief only, up to the mid-1980s when full names were more often given. Letter Books of many of the Desk Officers have also been transferred to the Conservative Party Archive, so it is possible that further background material survives - see the separate catalogue: CRD/L. Occasionally briefs were circulated by the Research Department which were written by Members of Parliament, Ministers or Shadow Ministers, eg, the brief ref. PG/13/65/47 on Widows' Benefits, written by Margaret Thatcher MP, then the Conservative Shadow Spokewoman for Housing and Land, dated 01/06/1965.

Dates: Dates given in the form '31st January 1984' refer to the title of the brief, or the date of the parliamentary debate for which it was written, whereas dates given in the form '31/01/1984' refer to the date that the brief was written. Briefs were usually produced and circulated a few days prior to a parliamentary debate, occasionally only the day before.

Energy, 1974-1985

Note: The Ministry of Fuel and Power (Ministry of Power after 1957) became part of the Ministry of Technology in 1969, and then the Department of Trade & Industry between 1970-1974. When that department was broken up in January 1974, responsibility for energy transferred to the new Department of Energy, which existed until it was re-merged back into the re-established Department of Trade and Industry in 1992.

Transport, 1965-1985

Note: The Ministry of Transport was created in 1945, superseding the Ministry of War Transport. From 1953-1959 it was known as the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation until Civil Aviation became a Ministry in its own right, thereafter reverting to the Ministry of Transport. In 1970 responsibility for Transport passed to the new Department of the Environment until 1976, when a Department of Transport was re-established. Between 1997-2002, Transport again became subsumed with Environment, before emerging as a separate department again in 2002.
