Biographical / Historical

Hints for Speakers was first produced in 1925, and retained its original, handy 'flip-up' loose-leaf format until 1939 (although the copies held in the CPA were bound up by Central Office as reference copies). It varied from between 10-30 pages as required, and was usually produced weekly (becoming fortnightly from about the beginning of 1930), with an index produced every 6 months.

While some Hints provided a general overview of recent parliamentary activity/Conservative achievements, most focussed on a specific topic (eg,'The Pension Bill' – Issue No. 31, 30th July 1925 and 'The Stand against Aggression' – issue No. 7, 20th April 1939). The 6-monthly indexes include a list of the subjects covered.

Hints for Speakers continued without a break until August 1939.
