Speeches

Reference code: CHUR 5

Part of: CHUR
Next record: CHUR 6
Previous record: CHUR 4

Date: 1942 - 1960

Scope/content:

This class of papers mainly covers WSC's post-war speeches, from 1945 up to his final years, and follows on from the earlier speeches contained in CHAR 9. Within each year, the papers are arranged in chronological order, and are divided into House of Commons and non-House of Commons speeches. They chiefly consist of speaking notes, drafts, notes and source material, press cuttings reporting the speeches, copies of Hansard and prints.

Originally the material for each speech was stored in an individual envelope. For conservation reasons, the papers have now been taken out, and the empty envelopes placed at the beginning of each speech.

Subjects covered by the speeches include: General Election campaigns, as fought both nationally and in WSC's own constituency; domestic politics such as the economy, housing, post-war reconstruction, rationing, agriculture, nationalization of industry, unemployment, education and general party politics; foreign policy, including relations with the United States, the Soviet Union and India and the future of Europe; defence, including the organization of NATO, the Cold War, nuclear weapons, rearmament and disarmament; honours awarded to WSC; tributes to WSC's late colleagues; and specific events, such as the Suez Crisis, the Korean War, the 1953 floods and the death of King George VI and succession of Queen Elizabeth II.

Where WSC's speeches have been published in Robert Rhodes James's "Winston S Churchill: His Complete Speeches, 1897-1963" the publication details have been included in the description of the speech.
