Extent: 364 shelfmarks

Organisational History

The National Union of Conservative and Unionist Associations (NUA) was established in 1867. It is a federation of constituency associations, bringing together the rank and file of the Party in a national organisation. Representatives of the constituencies meet at area and national level, and a system of advisory committees is used to convey grass roots opinion to the Party leadership. The National Union exists to express opinion and support and, as such, can exert a degree of influence on the Leader and over Party policy. It does not, however, possess any mandatory powers. The annual Party Conference is a National Union function.

Arrangement

The papers of the NUA are arranged into 8 sections: 1. Rules and standing orders, 1867-1990; 2. Annual Conference, 1867-1999; 3. Central Council, 1899-1995; 4. Executive Committee, 1897-1989; 5. General Purposes Committee, 1940-88; 6. Sub-Committees, 1909-86 ; 7. General Memoranda and Correspondence, 1960; 8. Standing Advisory Committee on Candidates, 1935-93.

Annual Conference, 1867-2004

    Annual Conference minutes, 1867-1994

Note: A gap in the chronology indicates that no conference was held in that year. The minutes etc. for the conferences of 1888, 1889, 1941, 1943 and 1945 have not survived. Up to 1946, manuscript minutes of Conference proceedings were kept, often incorporating newspaper cuttings. The minutes included the annual report of National Union's Central Council, lists of delegates attending, and a record of motions debated, annotated to show which of those were carried. After 1946 the 'minutes' were published, and included the programme for each session of Conference, a verbatim report of speeches made (including contributions from the floor), and resolutions passed. The annual reports of Central Council continued to be included until 1958. From 1947 to 1977 these volumes were indexed by subject and speaker.From 1978, bound typescript transcripts of platform speeches made by Front-Bench ministers/shadow ministers only were recorded, along with a list of resolutions passed. From 1993, resolutions were no longer included.

    Annual Conservative Party Conference handbooks, 1871-2004

Note: The annual Party Conference handbook has changed very little in format since 1894. Prior to this, a published Annual Report was presented to Conference delegates by the Central Council of the National Union, and these survive from 1871. The Annual Report (between 1948 and 1965, presented jointly by the Central Council and the Executive Committee, and from 1966 by the Executive Committee alone) continued to be a major component of the Conference Handbook, providing a detailed account of the Party's activities during the preceding year, but it also provided an agenda for the Conference, and a compendium of useful information on the Party, includings lists of Central Office and Area officials, motions presented to Conference by constituency associations, and details of ancillary meetings to be held during Conference. Gaps in chronology indicate that no agenda printed as no conference was held.
