Scope and Content

The London Society stepped up its intervention in elections 1908-1909, and to make this more effective its workers in constituencies were asked to complete a profile of information for their constituency which would be useful during election campaigns.

The Constituency Books which were compiled, contained usually the names and addresses of perty officials, party organisations, MPs and candidates with (usually) their attitude towards Women's Suffrage, and often a brief survey of the political and social character of the constituency. Some contained details of halls and major factories. The range of information given in the books varies much from constituency to constituency.

It would appear that the books were periodically up-dated and those listed here are obviously only a proportion of those which were compiled over the years.
