Part of: CHAR
Next record: CHAR 5
Previous record: CHAR 3

Date: 1904 - 1908

Scope/content:

This class of papers covers WSC's time as Liberal MP for North West Manchester (1906 to 1908).

The papers contain correspondence between WSC's office and local officials discussing standard constituency affairs (such as arrangements for WSC's visits to Manchester; his support for various local associations and events; and recommendations for positions as magistrates).

However, the predominant national topics of the period (the Aliens Bill, Free Trade, the Education Bill, the Licensing Bill, Home Rule and female suffrage) are represented in the papers. The correspondence also covers issues connected with WSC's ministerial duties as Under Secretary of State for the Colonies (such as the delay in the completion of the Nyasaland Railway in Malawi, see CHAR 4/16).

WSC lost his seat at Manchester when he had to seek re-election following his appointment as President of the Board of Trade.
